    Principles of responsible governance of tenure were integrated into local, national and regional level policies and programmes , ensuring that both the Voluntary Guidelines and the Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa are used to capacitate key stakeholders and secure legitimate tenure rights. Awareness was raised among more than 2 000 people at high level meetings (32 percent of them women), involving more than 30 countries, in an effort to increase the knowledge of policy makers, continental institutions, customary institutions, civil society organizations, farmer organizations and key stakeholders on the importance of using the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) and the Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa (F&G) in an integrated way, to improve governance of tenure. The project also undertook significant capacity development efforts, with 735 change agents (30 percent of them women) comprising policy makers, parliamentarians, traditional authorities, academia, civil society and the private sector forming a critical mass of well capacitated beneficiaries around whom tenure reforms can be woven for sustainable change. A further 4 197 people (31 percent of them women) were reached through the dissemination of knowledge products, including both sets of guidelines and their technical guides. A web based knowledge management platform was successfully developed to provide a one stop access point for information on the transversal and all in country projects, while eight capitalization meetings were held to provide a platform for project implementation teams to exchange the experiences and lessons learned during the project period.

    Sustaining the Implementation of The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Lands, Fisheries And Forestry in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) at National and District Level in Sierra Leone - TCP/SIL/3602 2020

    In Sierra Leone, the implementation of the globally agreedVoluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance ofTenure of Lands, Fisheries and Forestry in the Context ofNational Food Security (VGGT) began in February 2014under the German-funded project “Support forCountry-Level Implementation of the Voluntary Guidelineson the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land,Fisheries and Forests” (referred to as VGGT ProjectPhase I), which ended on 31 July 2016. Phase I led tothe creation of a comprehensive institutional frameworkrequiring regular and ongoing meetings among keystakeholders from both government and civil societyorganizations.The present project was designed to leverage the benefitsof the implementation of the VGGT and to sustain theimplementation of the key emerging activities, localizingthe implementation of the VGGT at the district level. Thisproject provided the opportunity to incorporate lessonslearned during VGGT Project Phase I and incorporateother stakeholders who had not been fully engagedduring the first phase – in particular the private sector,members of parliament, local authorities etc. – in VGGTimplementation. The importance of continuing toimplement key and high-level activities ensured furtherpolitical buy-in and the application of VGGT principles,not least through the implementation of the newlyapproved National Land Policy (NLP).The overall aim of the project was to sustain theimplementation of the VGGT in Sierra Leone. This was tobe achieved through three main outputs:• A multistakeholder platform that continues topromote, implement and mainstream the VGGT.• Stakeholders in Parliament and at district levelsensitized on the VGGT and on the implementation ofthe NLP.• Support for the implementation of the newly approvedkey natural resources-related sector policies (the NLPand the Fisheries Policy).

    Terminal evaluation of the project “Reducing vulnerability and increasing adaptive capacity to respond to impacts of climate change and variability for sustainable livelihoods in agriculture sector in Nepal”
    Project code: GCP/NEP/070/LDF GEF ID: 5111
    2020
    Also available in:

    The project’s goal was to support Nepal’s agriculture sector to become climate resilient by promoting urgent and immediate adaptation measures and integration of adaptation priorities outlined in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) into agriculture sectorial policies, plans, programmes and local actions. The final evaluation found that the relevant institutional structures in Nepal are now technically capable of incorporating climate change adaptation in agriculture sector decision-making. However, project districts could not benefit from strengthened staff capacity due to scattering of institutional memory caused by staff transfers and relocation in federal, provincial and local governments. Evidence of climate change adaptation related awareness raising and knowledge management activities were apparent in project districts. However, wider dissemination of knowledge and awareness raising products for replication and up-scaling of the project remains yet to be achieved adequately. The project has contributed in economic and social empowerment of most vulnerable Farmer’s Field School group members and specifically the women. However, a robust agriculture sector support mechanism will be required to sustain the impact in future.
