The SGP and SOS SAHEL innovative partnership launched during the 23rd Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2017, aims to achieve better synergy and efficiency in scaling up community-driven and innovative initiatives that focus on improving agro-ecology, and enhancing capacity and knowledge on best practices in the Sahel.
Thirty community-based projects were supported in seven countries- Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Mali, Niger and Senegal. Hence enabling community-based organizations and CSOs to develop and implement adaptive landscape and seascape management strategies that build social, economic and ecological resilience, based on local sustainable development benefits. It does this in part through policy development and support for scaling up and strengthening sustainability of successful initiatives through joint and collaborative advocacy activities.
