General

After a decade of implementation, the Pan African Agency of the Great Wall has recorded tangible achievements in each of the member states. The second decade, which is the scaling-up phase, will be based on a Priority Investment Plan (PIP) developed in collaboration with all the Agency's partners. It is with the aim of contributing to the implementation of the 2021-2030 PIP that this request for support from the AfDB Group focuses on (i) strengthening the technical and institutional capacities of the eligible structures and countries of the initiative and the Great Green Wall Agency, for an effective Environmental Monitoring System, (ii) mobilizing resources through a program that will address issues of adoption to climate change, development of agricultural, forestry and pastoral value chains, and sustainable land management. This project provides an opportunity for the Bank Group to contribute in an accelerated but effective manner to capacity building and resilience in countries undergoing fragility where pledged financial commitments from partners may not create the desired impact if an effective monitoring and evaluation system on the one hand and a long-term programmatic approach on the other are not envisaged. The Pan-African GGW Agency will play a technical coordination and resource mobilization role, and will strengthen the partnership with actors such as UNEP and FAO that are planning major programs in support of GGW, thereby ensuring that the Bank Group's results and approach are scaled up.

Objectives

The general objective of the intervention is to contribute to the implementation of the PIP 2021-2030, through the strengthening of the technical and institutional capacities of the eligible structures and countries of the initiative, the strengthening of the monitoring and evaluation system at the regional and national levels and the mobilization of resources through a program of adaptation to climate change, development of agricultural, forestry and pastoral value chains, and deployment of sustainable land management techniques. Three specific objectives will help achieve this general objective: (i) to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation system at the regional and national levels, (ii) to update the Agency's resource mobilization instruments and (ii) to develop a high impact project. The main expected results are: (i) the regional and national monitoring-evaluation systems of the GMA become more operational; (ii) resource mobilization is effective; and (iii) the populations of the supported areas are more resilient thanks to the development of a high impact program.

Target Groups

The main direct beneficiaries of the project are: (i) the Great Green Wall Agency located at the regional level and, (ii) the national structures of the Great Green Wall located in Mali, Niger, Sudan, Eritrea, and Chad. The indirect beneficiaries of the project are the communities residing along the route of the Great Green Wall in these 5 countries. The indirect beneficiaries of the project are the communities residing along the Great Green Wall route in these five countries, which will benefit from: (i) the mobilization of more resources by the APGMV, the resilience of the communities will be strengthened through the physical activities planned for the implementation of the regional program; and, (ii) the operationalization of the monitoring and evaluation system will help to make the current and future operations of the Great Green Wall initiative more effective.
