DescriptionThe proposed CBIEM aims at supporting sustainable local development by providing communities in Niger with the means to improve the management of rural and peri-urban ecosystems so as to generate both local and global environmental benefits. It is an attempt to reduce poverty and vulnerability by combating land degradation and desertification in Niger and by conserving and eventually restoring ecological mechanisms. It also aims at increasing the carbon sequestration capacity of dryland ecosystems via an increase in biomass production and a reduction in biomass depletion, particularly with respect to fuel wood consumption.
Implementation StatusApproval by the Bank Board was received in April 2003. Project Implementation plans are now being undertaken.
