DescriptionThe SIP aims to optimize natural resource use at the landscape level in SSA countries by integrating and implementing SLM across sectors, assisted by the knowledge, analytical, and policy support of the World Bank (in association with TerrAfrica partners) and a programmatic envelope of well-informed, sequenced investments. SIP is modeled upon guidance pioneered by several WB/GEF Strategic Partnerships, including the Black Sea-Danube Partnership Investment Fund, the SSA Fisheries Partnership, and other recent GEF programmatic efforts such as the China Biodiversity Partnership, and CACILM. It is also aligned with the new and evolving GEF programmatic guidance shaped from these positive experiences, while also speaking directly to the emerging GEF emphasis on cross-sectoral integration across focal areas. In support of the implementation of the shared vision outlined in the TerrAfrica platform, a strategic programmatic WB/GEF funding partnership will leverage much stronger efficiency and effectiveness of SLM investments.
