A Principal Objective: Every integrated program of interventions will be aimed at achieving a principal objective, whose nature will depend upon the “entry point” and whose goal, in line with the MDGs and the WSSD Plan of Implementation, will be the fostering of environmentally sustainable development. In doing so, global benefits will be accrued in a cluster of focal areas, or even in all of them. A tentative/preliminary Operational Program indication will correspond to the Principal Objective.

FileLME Breakout Session by admin — last modified Feb 29, 2012 08:25 AM
Needs: Great global demand for adequate M&E. Demonstrate links between projects and beneficial impacts. Need for wider scope of indicators (governance etc.). Need for coordination between GEF agencies and donors. Strong need for coordination at national level. Need for coordination at low cost. Challenges: Existing frameworks not fully operational. Multi-country context.
FileLake Basin Thematic Sessions 1, 2, and 3 by admin — last modified Feb 29, 2012 08:25 AM
Objective: Design projects to seek balance between technical and administrative aspects. Implement a sub-basin approach. Avoid decisions based on achieving a quick fix. Be focused but also flexible. Use environmental projects as a starting point for cooperation on other issues. Design projects to actively involve countries. Consider the full impacts of the project, including poverty alleviation.

FileIntegrated Approaches Across Focal Areas by admin — last modified Feb 29, 2012 08:25 AM
Actions: Develop a design tool to help incorporate linkages between focal areas at program level, to break down silos at project level to hard wire linkages into project design (see STAP tool) Improve coordination of GEF projects across focal areas within a geographic region where potential synergies and value added are high. Capture these synergies in policy reform and governance arrangements to solidify links, improve outcomes and enhance sustainability.
