DescriptionThe goal is to combat land degradation and improve rural livelihoods in the CACs. The objective is to establish the Central Asian Initiative for Land Management (CACILM), a multi-country and donor partnership to support the development and implementation of national level programmatic frameworks for more comprehensive and integrated approaches to sustainable land management in the region. CACILM will be guided by a National Programming Framework (NPF) for each country that will: (i) describe the necessary policy, legislative, and institutional conditions for sustainable land management; (ii) describe the approach to mainstreaming sustainable land management into national development planning and budgetary processes; (iii) ensure an effective mechanism(s) for broad stakeholder participation in the formulation, design and implementation of activities; (iv) identify the priority problems and constraints to sustainable land management; (v) identify the priority investment and technical assistance requirements and their sequencing; (vi) identify and match the ongoing and planned investment and technical assistance programs of external agencies to the individual national needs; and (vii) specify a monitoring and evaluation system that will identify objectives, milestones, and indicators to measure progress against benchmarks for sustainable land management and resource mobilization.
Implementation StatusPDF-B activities ongoing in the five countries including extensive national and multi-country analysis and consultations. Project Executive Summary is projected to be submitted to GEF on 24 March 2006.
