Project description

The goal of this project is to help Antigua and Barbuda better meet and sustain global environmental priorities within the framework of national development priorities. This requires the country to have the capacity to coordinate efforts, as well as best practices for integrating global environmental priorities into planning, decision-making, and reporting processes. To that end, the objective of this project is to strengthen capacities for the effective management of data and information in order to catalyze attaining and sustaining obligations under the three Rio Conventions as well as to monitor progress towards meeting these obligations. The project is in line with the GEF-6 CCCD Strategy objective 1, which calls for countries to “integrate global environmental needs into management information systems.” The uniqueness of this project is centered on its cross-cutting nature. Other projects currently under implementation focus on strengthening targeted capacities under one of the three Rio Conventions, and thus have a relatively narrower system boundary than the CCCD programme approach. This project will be carried out via two linked components. Component one calls for environmental indicators and a national environmental information management system for Antigua and Barbuda. Component two focuses on generating, accessing, and using information and knowledge. The project will take an adaptive collaborative management (ACM) approach to implementation, which calls for stakeholders to take an early and proactive role in the mainstreaming exercises, as well as to help identify and solve unexpected implementation barriers and challenges. By taking an ACM approach, project activities and outputs can be more legitimately modified and adapted to maintain timely and cost-effective project performance and delivery.
