This project will strengthen targeted policy, institutional, and technical capacities within the existing baseline of current capacity development efforts.  This project is in line with the GEF-6 CCCD Strategic Objectives 1, 2, 3, and 4.  The goal of this project is that Djibouti will be better enabled to meet and sustain global environmental priorities within the framework of national socio-economic development priorities.  The immediate objective of this project is to strengthen targeted national capacities to deliver and sustain global environmental outcomes by mainstreaming, monitoring, and decentralizing global environmental governance.  This requires the country to have the capacity to coordinate efforts, as well as be able to adopt best practices for integrating global environmental priorities into decentralized planning, decision-making, and reporting processes.  The project will be carried out via four linked components.  Component 1 calls for enhancing capacities to mainstream, develop, and apply policies and legislative frameworks for the cost-effective implementation of the three Rio Conventions.  Component 2 focuses on decentralization of global environment governance, specifically to strengthen targeted institutional arrangements for the cost-effective and streamlined application of better natural resource management practices that meet dual national socio-economic and global environmental objectives.  Component 3 will focus on setting up and initiating the early implementation of an environmental management information system for improving the country’s monitoring and assessment of global environmental impacts and trends.  Activities under Component 4 are a suite of knowledge management exercises that set out to improve environmental attitudes and values for the global environment.  The project will take an adaptive collaborative management (ACM) approach to implementation, which calls for stakeholders to take an early and proactive role in the mainstreaming exercises, as well as to help identify and solve unexpected implementation barriers and challenges.  By taking an ACM approach, project activities and outputs can be more legitimately modified and adapted to maintain timely and cost-effective project performance and delivery.
