Thus, global environment benefits (GEBs) of this project include carbon sequestration and climate regulation as a result of land rehabilitation, land restoration, improvement of government policies as well as access to education and information regarding land degradation. The generation of these GEBs will be supported by several socio-economic benefits that will be delivered both at national and local level by this GEF-FAO-UNEP proposal. At national level, this project will, in the first place, strengthen the development of policies and measures to address the issue of LDN contributing to the achievement of UNCCD National Action Programme as well. Outcome 1.1 ensures that the legal and policy framework is reinforced. The increase of land productivity and yields at smallholder level will also lead to the overall boost of production in the agriculture, agroforestry and land-use change sectors. At local level, the project will indirectly support poverty reduction and increased food security as a result of smallholders’ income raise. Secondly, SLM demonstration activities under Output 1.2.2 will bring about carbon benefits in four pilot areas through land restoration.
