    Management Response to the Final Evaluation of the Project: “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources”
    GCP /ECU/080/GFF
    2019
    Also available in:

    The ecosystem aimed to conserve and sustainably manage by the GEF-funded project “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources" is the “páramo” which offers important environmental services such as the production of water, the capture of CO2 and great variety of native crops preserved thanks to the traditional knowledge of indigenous communities. The project's achievements were significant in the Chimborazo province: raising environmental awareness on the conservation of water resources, creation of regulations to implement compensation mechanisms for environmental services in order to improve the governance of natural resources, the approval of ordinances at provincial and cantonal level to protect biodiversity, storage and optimization of the use of irrigation water by creating committees of irrigators and water for human consumption. Future projects should continue supporting national and local governments in conserving endemic biodiversity (including agrobiodiversity) and implementing an information system on the state of biodiversity in the Chimborazo Reserve.

    Watershed management in action
    Lessons learned from FAO field projects
    2017
    Also available in:

    This study reviewed the achievements, and also the shortcomings, of 12 watershed management projects technically supported by FAO over the past decade, with a view to learning from experience. Unlike sectoral development approaches, watershed management involves examining the interactions among various natural processes and land uses and managing land, water and the wider ecosystem of the watershed in an integrated way. Watershed management is best carried out as a stepwise multistakeholder proc ess. The review identified a sequence of steps that watershed management projects or programmes should ideally follow. The approach has demonstrated its effectiveness for responding to global challenges of water supply, land restoration, climate change adaptation, disaster risk management and fighting hunger. To meet these challenges, the next generation of watershed management projects and programmes must be implemented over longer time frames, and they require sustained and coordinated investm ent from the public and private sectors. The review identified the following areas for moving forward: institutional strengthening for improved watershed governance; watershed monitoring; capitalizing on increased data availability; knowledge sharing and learning; and strategic partnerships for joint action on the ground.
