National Capacity Self-Assessment (NCSA) for Environmental Management

Project Summary

The main objective of the project is to accomplish a self-assessment of national capacities in environmental management in Madagascar. The NCSA will be conducted in a participatory manner, and cover primarily the issues of biodiversity, climate change, and land degradation. The self-assessment will review past and ongoing efforts for capacity development, assess the existing capacities at the systemic, institutional, and individual levels, and formulate a strategy/action plan to address the identified capacity gaps. The NCSA will assess not only thematic capacity constraints but also capacity gaps that cut across thematic areas.
