SIP: Stimulating Community Initiatives in Sustainable Land Management (SCI-SLM)
The overall objective is to refine ways of stimulating the further improvement and spread of community-based SLM initiatives, while simultaneously developing a methodology to upscale and institutionally embed SCI-SLM approaches at local and regional level in four pilot countries in Africa. The project will contribute to the SIP's Development and Global Environment Objectives in terms of implementation of policies and on-the-ground investments towards upscaling SLM aligned with national and SIP priorities and reduction of impacts of land degradation on ecosystem functions and services in SIP investment areas. South to South exchange and learning between strategically positioned countries is a key element of project design.
