Launched in 1992, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) is rooted in the belief that global environmental problems can be best addressed if local people are involved and direct community benefits and ownership are generated. In fourteen years of operation, SGP has worked with thousands of community –based organizations (CBOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in now 84 countries in five world regions: Africa, Asia/Pacific, Arab States, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States and Latin America/ Caribbean. In partnership with these local organizations, SGP has demonstrated that even with small amounts of funding (SGO grants are less than $50,000), local communities can undertake activities that will make a significant difference in their lives and environments and contribute to global environmental benefits at the same time. Since its inception, SGP has operated in decentralized, democratic, transparent, and country-driven manner, through National Coordinators (NC) and National Steering Committees (NSC). SGP grant-making, guided by Country Programme Strategies (CPS) developed on the basis of a global Strategic Framework in tandem with national environmental priorities, has funded close to 5,000 projects worldwide. The programme has paid especial attention attention to local and indigenous communities and gender concerns, and aimed for the replication and sustainability of its initiatives. As such, the programme has influenced national policies and donor agendas by increasing awareness of global environmental issues and communicating lessons learned, including best practices from community-based experiences. As SGP matured during the Second Operational Phase (1999-2005), the GEF Council has authorized SGP to expand at an accelerated pace, increasing the number of new countries incorporated annually from five to ten, and has enjoined SGP to give priority to Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in this further expansion. Since the launch of SGP’s Third Operational Phase in 2005, the questions of project sustainability and impact have become increasingly significant and SGP, as part of the wider GEF, has been called upon to address more effectively the matter of project and programme impacts and global benefits. This will entail refocusing SGP monitoring and evaluation processes and communications strategies towards impact and assessment and knowledge management. In the Third Operational Phase, SGP will intensify its efforts to facilitate increased access of the same local stakeholders to GEF resources to undertake activities in the GEF focal areas, by supporting outreach, capacity building, and building networking among grantees, This will be especially critical as the programme expands to include more LDCs and SIDS. The project continues with the following six outcomes: Global reach of SGP increased, especially to address global environmental problems in vulnerable countries; Country programmes implementing well designed project portfolios that incorporate new GEF Ops, SPs and focal areas; Existing country programmes maintained and strengthened; Local and global benefits of SGP demonstrated and applied; SGP-funded project sustainability enhanced; SGP potential as a GEF corporate programme more fully realized. The GEF SGP is implemented by UNDP on behalf of the three implementing agencies of the GEF – UNDP, World Bank and UNEP – and executed by UNOPS. SGP will continue to operate in a highly decentralized and country-driven manner through an NC and NSC in each participating country with support from the UNDP Country Office and in some countries, National Host Institution (NHI) or host NGO. The UNDP-Central Programme Management Team (CPMT) and UNOPS will provide as before, coordination, global guidance, support and supervision. The UNDP GEF Unit at UNDP Headquarters in New York manages all of its GEF activities, including SGP. The UNDP GEF Executive Coordinator and his/her Deputy are accountable, both to UNDP and to the GEF Secretariat and Council, for all UNDP GEF activities, including SGP. UNOPS, flowing agreed procedures, policy and strategy with UNDP-CPMT will continue to be responsible programme management (in financial and administrative areas) and execution support services in the following areas: personnel recruitment and contract administration for project staff and consultants; subcontracts for host institutions; monitoring, supervision and authorization and monitoring of expenditures; training and guidance on the above to country-level staff; and support for initiation of the programme in new countries.

The overall objective of the full Project, implemented by the UNDP, is to demonstrate and promote best practices and techniques for health-care waste management in order to minimize or eliminate releases of persistent organic pollutants and mercury to the environment. The Project will demonstrate the effectiveness of non-burn health-care waste treatment technologies, waste management practices and other techniques to avoid environmental releases of dioxins and mercury in seven strategically selected countries — Argentina, India, Latvia, Lebanon, the Philippines, Senegal and Vietnam — representing a range of income and indebtedness classifications, four of the six official U.N. languages and all of the world’s five development regions. In each participating country, the Project will develop best practice health-care waste management models through collaborations with at least one large hospital, as well as with an appropriate combination of smaller clinics, rural health and/or injection programs and pre-existing central treatment facilities. The selected model facilities and technologies represent a range of scenarios that serve to demonstrate the general applicability of the Project’s approach to a diverse set of global conditions. If replicated nationally and sustained, best practices and techniques initiated during the Project’s implementation arc expected to reduce the release of an estimated 187 g TEQ of dioxins and 2,910 kg of mercury to the environment each year from participating countries’ health-care sectors. The Project will also lay the groundwork for sustainability, replicability and the scaling-up of best techniques and practices beyond the model facilities and the Project countries by establishing or enhancing national training programs, pursuing policy reform, developing replication toolkits and awareness-raising materials, and disseminating these materials nationally and globally. An additional component aimed at developing locally-produced, affordable, non-burn health-care waste treatment technologies will be executed in Tanzania. The Project’s global objectives will reduce barriers to the implementation of the Stockholm Convention on POPs, the International Waters Global Programme of Action (GPA), the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), and the World Health Organization’s policies on safe health-care waste management and on mercury in health-care. An ancillary benefit of this work will be the improvement of health-delivery systems through the fostering of good health-care waste management practices, thereby supporting the prerequisites for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The Project’s ultimate goal is the protection of public health and the global environment from the impacts of dioxin and mercury releases.

This programme will assist developing countries in the design and implementation of national ICT for Development strategies. The work will build on both the policy framework of the Digital Opportunity Initiative report and recent country experiences where UNDP has been involved (Mozambique, Azerbaijan, Djibouti, etc.). The programme will also support awareness raising and local capacity building on ICT as an enabler for development through regional workshops. A critical component of the programme is the capturing of country experiences on both design and implementation and, based on this, refinement on the existing policy framework supported by toolkits and UNDP practice and guidance notes. In this context, UNDP will be better position to support the various WSIS processes at the global and country levels. UNDP’s BDP ICTD Group will co-ordinate the programme. It will also co-ordinate programme implementation, monitoring and evaluation, impact assessment and outreach activity with the assistance of UNDP country offices and regional ICTD policy advisors. The implementation of each national project will require the elaboration of a UNDP project document and detailed workplan. Depending on the character of each specific national programme, projects will have a manager working under the supervision of UNDP. UNOPS will execute the project on behalf of UNDP. UNOPS will also be responsible to UNDP/BDP for the proper accounting of resources allocated: for reporting on funds disbursed as per the UNDP adminitrative and financial guidelines; and for providing updates upon request to the ICTD Programme Practice Leader and BDP Directorate on the funding status of project activities.

Manda National Park (MNP), located in southeastern Chad, was declared a National Park in 1965 and is one of the last wildlife refuges in the Moyen-Chari. Since that time, the biodiversity at MNP has experienced periods of anthropogenic disturbance, especially during a period of extreme poaching in the 1970’s-1980’s. Continuing moderate levels of disturbance, such as extensive methods of agriculture, transhumant and sedentary pastoralism, use of natural resources and bush fires are threatening the recovery. Furthermore local people have few alternatives for fruit and firewood harvesting as much as pastoralists for using the Park resources, and generally biodiversity conservation has a low priority. Finally, root causes of biodiversity loss at MPM are political instability and a week Government, poverty and population growth. Under the baseline scenario, the biodiversity disturbance would almost certainly continue and could potentially lead to irreversible degradation. The present project presents solutions to the biological degradation as described above from which the development outcome would be improved national capacity to monitor environmental conditions and trends and to assess policy performance in promoting environmental sustainability. The Global Environment Fund (GEF) alternative will demonstrate a long-term shift in current unsustainable practices within Moyen-Chari by focusing on the MNP and its associated landscapes. The immediate objective is to ensure conservation and sustainable use of MNP while demonstrating the use of wildlife corridors as a technique for rehabilitating and maintaining the biological diversity of the region. This immediate objective would be achieved through the following specific outcomes: i)MNP would operate according to well-functioning and adaptive systems – including staffing, regulatory, ecological and compliance monitoring systems and sustainable use protocols, designed and implemented through a participative management planning process; ii)Residents of surrounding communities and migratory pastoralists would place significantly less pressure on MNP’s natural resources, while concurrently playing and active and participatory role in MNP’s conservation, rehabilitation and related planning; iii) One or more wildlife corridors would function in support of the rehabilitation of MNP wildlife and in maintaining ecological connectivity between MNP and nearby wildlife-rich areas; UNOPS is the project Executing Agency and will be responsible for executing the UNDP/GEF/Government funded project.

The Global Thematic Programme against Corruption (PACDE) is an important initiative to achieve UNDP’s principles, objectives and goals outlined in the new strategic plan “Accelerating Global Progress on Human Development” (2008-2011). In particular, this integrated programming initiative will focus on the key result area that aims at supporting national partners to implement democratic governance practices grounded in human rights, gender equality and anti-corruption. The PACDE is a response to evolving international norms and standards on anti-corruption, which have made it necessary for UNDP to refocus its energies and priorities in anti-corruption within its mandate of reducing poverty and promoting sustainable development. The advent of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) on December 14, 2005 and other regional instruments offer new challenges and opportunities for fighting corruption. Member States are approaching UNDP Country Offices for technical cooperation in establishing and strengthening national anti-corruption institutions, developing strategies and laws to prevent corruption, and implementing interventions that address major systemic causes of corruption in relation to use of resources for development. Corruption is found in rich and poor, developing and developed countries alike, albeit in different forms and magnitude. Evidence from across the globe confirms that corruption hurts the poor disproportionately, hindering economic development, reducing access to and provision of social services, and diverting resources away from investments in infrastructure, institutions and social services. Besides its negative effects on the economy, it has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies. It undermines democracy and the rule of law, leads to violations of human rights, distorts markets, erodes the quality of life and allows organized crime, terrorism and other threats to human security to flourish. It is within this context that the PACDE is being promoted to enhance support to Member States in implementing anti-corruption initiatives that enhance poverty reduction, increase the realization of the MDGs, and achieve sustainable development results. The project anticipates an increase in requests for technical cooperation by member states due to the rapid increase in ratifications of UNCAC (107 as of January 30. 2008). The strategy of the project is to ensure that UNDP can utilize the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and other international instruments to further its development mandate. The programme will help UNDP to clarify its comparative advantage and how it compliments that of UN Office on Drugs and Crime. This is one of the reasons for the One UN reform pilot project in the context of fighting corruption at the country level. The programme will benefit from BDP’s new focus on enhancing service delivery at the county level, by clearly stating the services, knowledge products and the personnel resources available to country partners. So far, for example, there are limited knowledge products guiding partners on how to proceed with this mandate in the context of UNCAC and related new developments. To maximize its impact, the PACDE will coordinate and work closely with Regional Service Centres and existing or new regional initiatives in anti-corruption, in particular building on the Asia Pacific Human Development Report on Corruption, RBA’s initiative on Human Development Report for Africa 2008, and similar efforts in other regions. The global programme will focus on building or enhancing effective partnerships among various agencies and institutions working in the field of anti-corruption. UNOPS is providing administrative support to the UNDP for the implementation of the programme.

Burundi suffered from 1993 to 2007 an armed conflict which led to an exodus of large numbers of civilians. In recent years, and following a peace process initiated in 2007, many conflict affected populations started to return to their places of origin. The provinces of Bururi, Makamba and Rutana in Southern Burundi have seen the highest numbers of returnees in the country, including refugees, internally displaced people and former combatants. Thousands of them, lacking access to land or basic services, were relocated in Integrated Rural Villages (IRV) built in the Southern provinces of the country. Upon return, the returnees receive a roof and a small plot of land of 3 acres in one of these peace villages. Although this support constitutes an important step towards a better life, it is not enough to cover the basic needs of a family and ensure their successful reintegration. The programme outlined within this project management and implementation supports the repatriation process and the sustainable reintegration of the affected populations with a programme enhancing socio-economic development of Integrated Rural Villages.

This project complements the China South-South Development Centre project which is implemented by China International Centre for Economic and Technical Exchanges (CICETE) through national execution. It extends the initial project with specific outputs which will be implemented by UNOPS. South-South Cooperation is based on the premise that the wealth of knowledge and capacity in the South, when systematically mobilized and shared, can facilitate the effective participation of the developing countries in the global economy through the creation and strengthening of technical and business capacity. Effective south-south development cooperation has the potential to complement traditional North-South cooperation, however despite the diversified ways and efforts to promote South-South Cooperation (SSC), which include TCDC, ECDC or triangular cooperation, south-south initiatives have not yet meet its full potential. China, as an emerging economy with a good deal of development experience, has always been a flag-bearer and staunch supporter of SSC. Yet despite this commitment, stakeholders in the Chinese Government recognize that there are still limitations to the Chinese approach to development cooperation that prevent it becoming a sustainable approach for growth and change. For example, most of the SSC activities in China are still carried out on a bilateral basis led by the government with minimal engagement of potentially important stakeholders such as the private sector, and like many south-south initiatives, funds mobilization and utilization efficiency is limited. This project extends the view of a sustainable South-South Development Centre to be established in Beijing, China. The South-South Development Centre (SSDC) with the operational structure able to operate beyond the government operational scope, with UNOPS mandate to act as an agency to consolidate potential resources in China for SSC promotion and complement the current government-led South-South Cooperation efforts and facilitate and strengthen public-private partnerships, mobilize funds, and finally to help maximize the fund utilization efficiency.
