Project Description

According to the bank document, the project development objective is “to improve natural resources management and related value addition in selected landscapes. The proposed project will support investments in a manner that is consistent with the landscape approach. This means that investments contribute to common outcomes, are spatially connected across the landscape, and are designed to limit negative impacts on ecosystem integrity while at the same time maximizing development benefits. The investments supported by the project therefore include the development and enhancement of climate-resilientinfrastructure and production systems; adoption of sustainable landscape management practices, information systems and decision support tools; and institutional strengthening at the national and subnational levels. Investments will also support the strengthening of the enabling environment for private sector to invest in natural resources.
