Programa de Biodiversidad; Enlazando ecosistemas prioritarios en Centroamérica
The project aims at supporting sustainable use and protection of natural resources in Transfrontier Conservation Areas (TFCA) in Southern Africa. The region is home to numerous species, including many endangered species like elephants, rhinos and large cats of prey. This unique fauna and flora provides the livelihood for the resident population, which keeps growing. Along with climate change and poaching, the growth in population puts pressure on the ecosystem. The goal of this project is to combine conservation with socioeconomic development of the resident population in Transfrontier Conservation Areas - protection and sustainable use of natural resources for the benefit of the people. Therefore, the project addresses three dimensions: Conservation, improved livelihoods for the resident population and improved management of TFCAs. Œ ŒIn order to achieve this goal, a flexible, demand-oriented and performance-based financing mechanism will be established, which allows for investments into thematically and geographically complementary measures. Project partner is the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Œ ŒFor the first phase of the project a financial contribution of 12 million euros is envisaged. 80 percent of these funds are earmarked for measures in the three biggest TFCAs - KAZA, Great Limpopo, Malawi-Zambia - which together represent 60 percent of the total TFCA area in the SADC-region. The project is expected to run from 2019 to 2025. Œ
Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) is a partnership programme launched in 2012 between Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN (FAO) the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) the International Institute for Development and Environment (IIED ) and AgriCord. In 2013-2017 Finland supported FFF with EUR 42 million.FFF works from local to international level. The goal for the programme is to cover 25 countries. The development impact of FFF is Climate Resilient Landscapes and Improved Livelihoods . FFF emphasises the role of the forest and farm producer organisations (FFPO) in action against climate change and in increasing livelihoods especially for women youth and indigenous peoples. The FFF?s outcomes reflect the integrated approach of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: 1) More inclusive governance and cross-sectorial processes lead to enabling policies and legal environment for FFPOs; 2) Increased entrepreneurship access to markets and finance through equitable value chains and busines s development services within FFPOs; 3) Improved delivery of landscape scale mitigation adaptation and resilience for climate change through direct engagement of FFPOs and integration with inclusive livelihood approaches; 4) Improved and equitable access t o social and cultural services.Finland's support to the FFF Phase II in 2018-2020 is EUR 21 million.
This activity supports an annual contribution to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) which is a membership Union uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations. It provides public, private and non-governmental organisations with the knowledge and tools that enable human progress, economic development and nature conservation to take place together.
