About this project


This project will strengthen a targeted set of policy, legislative, and economic instruments as stronger incentive mechanisms for mainstreaming global environmental obligations. Specifically, the project will do so through the integration of global environmental values and principles within planning frameworks for integrated water resource management (sustainable watershed management). With this focus, the project will strengthen targeted foundational capacities (systemic, institutional, and individual) to reduce pressure on natural resources through competing land uses, identify and test innovative financing mechanisms for sustainable forest management targeted to protecting watersheds, as well as to mainstream synergies and best practices for monitoring impacts and assessing ecosystem services.


To strengthen targeted legal and regulatory frameworks as well as economic incentives to meet global environmental outcomes through sustainable watershed management.
