Projet de consolidation de la gouvernance environnementale locale au Burkina Faso (COGEL)
The project seeks to strengthen the capacities of public and private stakeholders at the decentralized level to better manage the risks and opportunities linked to the impact of climate change. The expected results are the following:
a) The central structures have the instruments to apply the principles of sustainable development in the implementation of the national development strategy and the local development plans.
b) Relevant information on the state of the environment is available and enables the monitoring of the implementation of environmental policies on the decentralized levels.
c) Local development plans are resilient to climate change and are based on low greenhouse gas emissions and local charters for the management of natural resources are adopted.
d) Local governments and the communities have access to funding and to appropriate technology to implement local development plans (as under c.).
The primary beneficiaries are local governments, communities and local civil society organizations. The central institutions for sustainable development and for decentralization as well as the decentralized State structures will also receive support required to stimulate an effective management of the environment at local level.
