Sustainable Land Management Programme to Combat Desertification
- Requested GEF Project Grant: $3,791,000, Co-financing: $16,630,000
- Project Cofinanced at a ratio 1 : 4.39
This project is to be understood within the context of the long-term partnership the GEF has built with the country on SLM issues. GEF supported the first phase of the Sustainable Land Management Programme to Combat Desertification in Pakistan through the Operational Programme 12 (OP12) in GEF-3 by developing and testing pilot approaches and building capacity and the enabling environment for SLM. The proposed project builds on these achievements and demonstrated success and will upscale SLM to a larger area.
