Guidance on TPP development
To support country-level project developers and their partners in the design of effective Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) transformative projects and programmes (TPP), the Global Mechanism – in collaboration with the secretariat and the Science-Policy Interface of the UNCCD – has developed a checklist to encourage innovation, ensure cohesion in the implementation of LDN and support positive transformation.
The purpose of this checklist is to:
- ensure innovation by translating the LDN Scientific Conceptual Framework into practice, including the LDN response hierarchy to avoid, reduce and reverse land degradation and the principle of counterbalancing where losses are balanced by gains in land-based natural capital
- promote responsible and inclusive governance through gender equality accountability and transparency
- ensure sustainability through a conducive policy environment in order to deliver multiple environmental, economic and social benefits and enhancing (sub)national ownership and capacity
- leverage innovative finance, especially from the private sector
The LDN TPP operational guide, intended for policy-makers, technical experts, international organizations, civil society organizations and the private sector, presents relevant information related to the development and implementation of LDN Transformative Projects and Programmes.
