Land Degradation Neutrality Transformative Projects and Programmes Operational Guidance for Country Support
This guide represents the first effort to gather, in a practical and pragmatic manner, all relevant information related to the development and implementation of Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) Transformative Projects and Programmes. Countries can use this document for the identification and design of interventions to address land degradation, as well as to guide their dialogue with funding agencies and implementing partners. The guide is intended for stakeholders involved in the design of LDN Transformative Projects and Programmes, particularly policy-makers, technical experts, international organizations, civil society organizations (CSOs) and the private sector.
Chapter 4 of this publication, i.e. Funding Opportunities and Partnerships to Achieve Land Degradation Neutrality, provides detailed review of the major international resources for Land Degradation Neutrality. Chapter 5 of the publication, i.e. Preparing Transformative Projects and Programmes, provides the operational steps required to develop LDN transformative project or programme proposals targeting public sources from the country perspective. The project development cycle is a standard procedure that requires the development and implementation of projects and programmes to be submitted to various donors/funds.
