Project Design

Project Design

Our experience includes the development of projects and programs in the areas of land management, water resource management, drought and desertification prevention, climate change adaptation, infrastructure protection and integrated coastal zone management. Our team has global experience, with a strong emphasis on Africa and Asia.

Our team is working with UNEP to develop a multi-focal project concept for funding through to the Global Environment Facility. This project will include measures to rehabilitate degraded ecosystems, reduce GHG emissions, strengthen local practices for natural resource use. The project concept can be found here.

This project is supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). As lead environment and climate change advisors, we provided guidance on the development of resilience-building activities and on the integration of climate change into agriculture and market development activities included in the program design.

With the support of the GEF, channeled through UNDP and UNEP, we are developing projects to develop cross-cutting environmental capacities in Haïti and Suriname. These Medium-Sized Projects are designed to assist countries in implementing multilateral environmental agreements and to address cross-cutting capacity needs for better environmental management.

This project, funded by the LDCF through UNEP, aims at implementing adaptation priorities in four coastal zones of Madagascar, taking an ecosystem-based approach. The project will include measures to rehabilitate degraded ecosystems as well as capacity building activities to strengthen decentralized planning, ecological monitoring, and integrated coastal zone management frameworks.

This project, funded by the Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF) through UNDP and UNEP, aims at strengthening the capacity of The Gambia to monitor and assess climate change. The project includes investments into the hydro-climate monitoring network, as well as technical assistance and institutional strengthening measures, and activities to strengthen the delivery of information at local level.

Part of a 10-country initiative, this project is funded by the Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF) through UNDP. It's objective is to strengthen the capacity of Tanzania to monitor hydroclimatic conditions and to integrate climate change into local development planning. The project includes large investments into the hydro-climate monitoring infrastructure, technical assistance for flood forecasting, and the implementation of a crowd-sourced disaster management and adaptation planning platform at local level.

This project, funded by the Least Developed Country Fund, IFAD and the World Bank, supports the integration of resilience building measures in efforts to support increased agricultural production and commercialization in the Northern Regions of Lesotho. The project includes technical support, agricultural research investments, and financial support to locally-developed investment proposals.

This project, funded by the UNFCCC's Adaptation Fund, provide support for the implementation of coastal protection measures in selected vulnerable areas of Tanzania. Implemented with support of the UN Environment Programme, this project includes coastal protection infrastructure as well as ecosystem-based adaptation measures.

This project, funded by the Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF), supports the implementation of coastal rehabilitation initiatives in response to pressures posed by climate change, including sea level rise, and coastal erosion, as well as measures to build institutional capacity of Tanzanian stakeholders in addressing coastal vulnerabilities and poverty.

This project, funded by the World Bank in partnership with the Least Developed Country Fund, includes capacity building for local fishing communities to deal with increasing climate variability, floods, as well as disaster risk management and safety at sea issues arising from increasing fogs.

This project focuses on addressing key elements of local vulnerability in Djibouti, specifically a predicted increase in water scarcity and declining water quality, flood risk and land management. The project promotes research into water availability and use, as well as community-based activities to reduce dependency on vulnerable resources.

This project proposes a "seed-to-store" approach to reforms in the rice sector in Madagascar with a view of proactively responding to anticipated climate changes and climate variability. The project proposes an integrated and community-based approach to enhancing rice productivity, using innovative techniques at all stages of the rice production cycle. The project is funded by the Adaptation Fund.

This project focuses on providing the government of Lesotho with the basic capacities and technologies required to undertake effective early warning and forecasting of climate conditions, while promoting local adaptation technologies and approaches in the agriculture and livestock sectors.

This project provide support to institutions in Djibouti to undertake early warning for flooding along wadi routes, while monitoring for current and future climate vulnerability in coastal zones. The project provides measures for rehabilitating degraded buffering coastal ecosystems, including mangroves, as a means to prevent negative coastal impacts from climate change.
This project, jointly supported by the government of Japan and the UN Development Programme under the Adaptation for Africa Programme, supports the development of policy capacities for coastal planning and adaptation in Tunisia. It includes measures to support the integration of Integrated Coastal Area Management measures into local planning frameworks.
The project supports the development of core capacities for integrated coastal planning in fragile areas of Gabon's coastline.
This project includes policy support measures for the Moroccan government, as well as moroccan communities in the Oasian ecosystems in order to promote proactive adaptation measures in arid and semi-arid fragile areas.
This project provided support to the DRC government for the implementation of initial adaptation measures in the agricultural sector, including the development of a system of provision of enhanced drought and pest-resistant agricultural material, and the development of local capacities for enhanced and and water use in vulnerable areas.
