District Livelihoods Support Programme (DLSP)

General

The programme drawn on the achievements of the District Development Support Programme, scaled up the decentralized development approach in 13 districts (Yumbe, Oyam, Apac, Busia, Bugiri, Mayuge, Luweero, Nakaseke, Masindi, Buliisa, Bundibugyo, Kyenjojo, Kamwenge) targeting landless people, small-scale farmers and fishers, and, in particular, women and youth among 100,000 households. To accelerate decentralization, the programme worked to support local economic development and strengthen the capacity of district governments to foster community development. Activities focus on community mobilization, agriculture and land management, and the development of access roads and water infrastructure. On land and natural resource governance, the programme supported the implementation of the Land Act in selected sub-counties, taking into account different tenure situations. It implemented the household mentoring approach giving a positive impact on co-spousal registration and women’s land access; and disseminated information through 52 awareness raising events on land tenure rights and training on land tenure and management policies. Through the programme, community-based management institutions were established; individual occupier land certificates were released and community and farm-based management plans for land, soil, water and vegetation conservation were developed.

Livestock and Pasture Development Project - II

General

The project aims to increase the nutritional status and incomes of 22,400 poor households in four districts of the Khatlon region by sustainably enhancing livestock productivity and climate resilience in a sustainable matter. Special attention will be given to woman-headed households and women belonging to poor households. Land and natural resource governance related interventions aim at securing land tenure by strengthening Pasture Users’ Union and through the titling of land user right certificates. The goal is to issuing 160 land use rights agreements to the Pasture Users' Union. This should lead to the reduction of disputes regarding access to pastures by 50%. The programme will also support the implementation of Tajikistan’s Pasture Law on different levels.

Smallholder Market-led Project (SMLP)

General

The purpose of the project is to enhance food and nutrition security and incomes among smallholder producer families of 10,355 households through diversified agricultural production and market linkages in the rain-fed Middleveld and Lowveld areas of the Lubombo and Shiselweni regions. On land and natural resource governance, the Chief's Letter of Consent will be used as means to transform communal grazing land in land for commercial agriculture and as a means to give specific groups of smallholders the usufruct of such land in return for guarantees on sustainable use. In parallel to the CDC-led appraisals, the Project will prepare GIS base maps recording land use and land resources from available remote sensing information and other existing secondary sources.

Scaling Up Participatory Sustainable Forest Management Program, SUFORD-SU

General

(The funding amount only reflects the support from Finland= all of Finland's funding, as, if widely understood, it could be included in the support of land tenure) The major focus – and added value - of the Lao PDR Forest Investment Plan (Lao FIP) is to promote participatory sustainable forest management (PSFM) of all types of forests, with a major emphasis on promoting the capacities of villagers and other grassroots managers. SUFORD-SU is the fourth in a series of projects promoting participatory sustainable forest management. The current project covers 13 provinces, 41 of the country’s 51 PFAs, comprising 2.3 million ha and more than 1000 villages. The current project is also piloting an approach to forest landscape management in four provinces, and piloting village forestry in at least 30 villages in this area. It is supporting work on payment for environmental services (PES) and reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). Forest and wildlife law enforcement activities continued to be supported, as well as work on key relevant policy, legislative, and regulatory issues. The project also disseminates information on project issues, and aims to raise awareness regarding climate change and REDD+. SUFORD-SU is not only developing its own monitoring and evaluation systems for the project, but working to develop and strengthen government monitoring, reporting, evaluation, and analysis capabilities. A PFA Monitoring System (PFAMS) will be built, to complement other ongoing work such as the National Forest Information System (NFIS) under development.
