This project aims to bring to the attention of African governments, the private sectors and other regional and national stake-holders the urgent need to find sustainable ways to restore and manage natural ecosystems while also establishing enabling conditions for countries to access environmental finance from emerging carbon/environmental finance markets.
Drawing on emerging lessons from initiatives currently underway both within and outside of UNDP, the project will:
i) Build on and expand ongoing efforts of helping African governments and institutions to
effectively participate in the international climate negotiations in particular, enhancing their understanding of the crucial Ball Road Map discussions, currently underway and their economic and policy implications within the context of the Convention,
ii) Act as vehicle to create awareness among regional and national partners of the development benefits of and the interface between sustainable development and
Payments for Ecosystem Services and Clean Development Mechanism, and
iii) Contribute to efforts aimed at establishing enabling institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks required for accessing environmental and related carbon finance, needed to sustainably restore and manage natural resources.
