Reversing Land and Water Degradation Trends in the Niger River Basin
This nine-country, five-year, single-phase, US$ 13 million GEF-funded Project, with joint implementation support by UNDP and the World Bank, will engage stakeholders at the local, national and regional levels to ensure that activities occur at the appropriate levels following the principle of subsidiarity for environmental management.
The Project development objective is, to provide the nine riparians an opportunity to define a transboundary framework for the sustainable development of the Niger River Basin, through strengthened capacity and better understanding of the Basin’s land and water resources. The development objective’s achievement will be monitored through the following results indicators: i) an institutional and management system established and operational for the Project; ii) enhanced local, national capacity and increased awareness of the challenges and issues in the Basin; iii) improved regional, national, local data and information management, and increased dialogue and exchange within and between riparians; iv) regional linkages and networks established and operational; v) demonstration pilot projects applied, validated and packaged for scaling-up and microgrant program executed and documented; and vi) the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) and Strategic Action Plan (SAP) completed and disseminated.
The six Project components, the component allocation, and the Implementing Agency (IA) support for the components are summarized below:
• Component 1: Institution Building (USD 3.52 million, Bank implementation support): The component activities augment existing regional and national institutional capacity to manage and implement concurrent regional projects, and focus on strengthening the regional and national institutional capacity, to promote good management practices and good governance.
