National Capacity Needs Self-Assessment for Global Environmental Management in DR Congo

Project Summary

The main objective of this project is to assess national capacities to manage the global management in the DRC. This national self-assessment will determine the gaps, constraints and priorities for the creation, development and reinforcement of individual, institutional and systemic capacities required to better manage environmental resources to ensure that they are used sustainably to support national efforts in the areas of development and the fight against poverty. This project will also enable the country to formulate a strategy and action plan to strengthen capacities for enhanced management of environmental resources, consult on and submit this action plan to partners and donors and carry out preliminary monitoring and evaluation.
