The project aims to improve incomes and living conditions for 21,000 households in the areas of Aftout South and Karakoro. The specific objective is to help build an economic and social fabric based on sustainable natural resource management that is inclusive of poor rural households, particularly women and young people.
This project funded by the Federal Government of Germany is intended to form part of the overall support programme specifically envisaged to provide targeted support for the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT).
This list of countries is where an Land Governance Assessment Framework (LGAF) has been COMPLETED.
The LGAF is a diagnostic tool that is implemented at the local level in a collaborative fashion, that addresses the need for guidance to diagnose and benchmark land governance, and that is intended to help countries prioritize reforms and monitor progress over time.
Maintenance of biodiversity, sustainable management of natural resources as well as mitigation to climate change are improved in Mauritania.
This programme aims at supporting African stakeholders in strengthening the role of Africa's forests and trees to adapt to climate change in ways that enhance liverlihoods, sustain buidiversity and improve the quality of the environment
The project aims to strengthen access and security of tenure by promoting and mainstreaming the principles of the Voluntary Guidelines on the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests (VGGTs)at the appropriate levels. This is a grant to IPAR. The project supports the dissemination of the VGGTs (national workshops, literacy activities, training), by building national policy dialogue platforms in the selected countries, and supporting the participation of CSOs and Farmers' Organizations in the functioning of the working groups and policy dialogue platforms.
Financial cooperation has assisted the Mauritanian coastguard in fishing surveillance for many years. Funds from the financial cooperation project "Fisheries Monitoring for Sustainable Resource Management" will also finance investments in the PNBA, such as radar monitoring stations and the expansion of the protective fleet.
