Designing Projects within the GEF Focal Areas to Address Land Degradation: with Special Reference to Incremental Cost Estimation

Designing Projects within the GEF Focal Areas to Address Land Degradation: with Special Reference to Incremental Cost Estimation

The aim of this paper is to illustrate how projects could be designed to address land degradation through the four focal areas; with special reference to incremental costs assessment. Approaches the question from a generic form through to specific examples. Uses paradigm cases to make the points explicit

Case studies are in:

  • Farmer-based approach to conserve african plant genetic resources and contain land degradation practices, Ethiopia

  • Community-based rangeland rehabilitation for carbon sequestration and biodiversity, Sudan

  • Ehancing long term (and short-term) carbon storage of degraded land, Mexco

  • Adaptation to climate change in relation to land degradation, Kazakstan

  • Assessment of incremental costs for a multi-focal area that builds on land degradation and rehabilitation efforts, Mauritania and Senegal

  • Lake Victoria Environmental Management Project, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania
