Project description

The objective of this project is to strengthen targeted national capacities to deliver and sustain global environmental outcomes within the framework of sustainable development priorities. The project will be implemented through five strategically linked components, each of which comprises a set of outputs with their respective activities that will build systemic, institutional, and individual capacities within Sudan. Among the key activities of the project are the enhanced targeted capacities, strengthened monitoring, an integrated environmental data and information management system, targeted training and awareness-raising, and an update to the NCSA. The project's strategy emphasizes a long-term approach to institutionalizing capacities to meet MEA obligations through a set of learning-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.
