Project description

The goal of this project is for Guinea-Bissau to make better decisions to meet and sustain global environmental obligations through improved natural resource valuation and accounting. To that end, the objective of this project objective to develop technical and institutional capacities for undertaking an economic valuation of global environmental goods and services as potentially impacted by proposed development policies, programmes, plans and projects. The project will be implemented through four strategically linked components, each of which comprises a set of outputs with their respective activities that will build systemic, institutional, and individual capacities within Guinea-Bissau. Among the key activities of the project are the enhanced targeted capacities, strengthened monitoring, natural resource valuation tools, and targeted training and awareness-raising. The project's strategy emphasizes a long-term approach to institutionalizing capacities to meet MEA obligations through a set of learn-by-doing activities that lay the foundation for effective decision-making regarding global environmental benefits. Active participation of stakeholder representatives in the full project life cycle facilitates the strategic adaptation of project activities in keeping with project objectives. Moreover, the inclusion of non-state stakeholders contributes to the adaptive collaborative management of project implementation and promotes long-term sustainability of project outcomes.
