Bonn, Germany – French and Spanish translations of the Land Degradation Neutrality Transformative Projects and Programmes: Operational guidance for country support, and French translation of the Manual for gender-responsive Land Degradation Neutrality transformative projects and programmes are now available.
The Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) Transformative Projects and Programmes: Operational guidance for country support is a guide to assist countries and their partners in developing innovative project or programme ideas targeting a range of funding sources, including the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The operational guide builds upon many other key reference documents developed in recent years by the Global Mechanism (GM) and the secretariat of the UNCCD to assist countries in achieving their LDN vision, ensuring that the fundamental features of LDN are given full consideration in any project or programme that is being designed.
The Manual for gender-responsive LDN transformative projects and programmes builds on work launched by the GM, UN Women, IUCN and UNDP in advising governments on how to integrate gender perspectives in the development of LDN projects and programmes as mandated by the UNCCD Gender Action Plan and the Science-Policy Interface LDN Conceptual Framework.
Both reports were officially launched during the UNCCD COP14 in India.
