Main goals

In order to provide territorial and local responses to forest preservation issues, the program aims to develop and consolidate a "landscape" approach in the management of natural and rural areas of priority interest for biodiversity. It is part of the continuity of the REDD+ Project of the Mé (PRM) and is in synergy with the projects of sustainable territories in progress in the landscapes of the Biological Diversity Zone of Mount Tingui (PAP-BIO) in Côte d'Ivoire and the PONASI complex in Burkina Faso (PONASI - WAKANDA) that the FFGE is co-financing.

Specific objectives

SO1. Strengthen concerted territorial planning that fully integrates biodiversity conservation issues
SO2. Strengthen the management of protected areas and their role at the landscape level
SO3. Supporting the transition of production methods and investment in natural capital
SO4. Measuring the impact of the project and building a "Zero Deforestation Territory" standard

Beneficiaries

Inhabitants and farmers of the region who constitute the populations of the target landscapes of Burkina Faso and Côte d'Ivoire. In particular, will be targeted:

  • Group of agro-pastoralists and artisans constituting the main animators of the local economy
  • Group of grassroots community organizations
  • Group of representatives of public administrations
  • The local populations of the Mabi-Yaya Natural Reserve
  • The local populations of Mount Tingui and the adjoining PNC, including transhumant herders
  • Sectoral associations, particularly farmers, collectors and herders

R10. Test of a method for mapping the β-biodiversity associated with cocoa cultivation using remote sensing techniques in the Mé region
R11. Establishment of a network of permanent plots in protected areas subject to fire and grazing (dry areas)
R12. Support to innovation of agricultural producers
R13. Support for the development of "zero deforestation" agricultural sectors
R14. Valorization and extension of wooded areas
R15. Construction of a toolbox "to develop zero deforestation and biodiversity preserving sectors
R16. Mapping of vegetation, resources, land use and changes throughout the territory
R17. Evaluation of the impact of producer support on deforestation (Me)
R18. Definition of a reference framework for the evaluation of monitoring and impacts of territorial programs/projects in rural areas
R19. Characterize the determinants of a zero deforestation territory approach in the three project landscapes
R20. Construction of a "Certified Zero Deforestation Territory" reference system

Activities

A1. Construction & formalization of structured dialogues reconciling rural development and concerted management of natural resources
A2. Support for land tenure security and concerted access to natural resources
A3. Strengthening the operational management of protected areas
A4. Supporting the OIPR in taking control of the Mabi-Yaya National Park

A6. To improve the social and economic valuation of natural resources allowing a better resilience of the populations facing multiple challenges while guaranteeing the positive impact of these sectors directly and indirectly on the ecosystems
A7. Consolidate the Zero Deforestation Value Chain approach
A8. Measure and monitor the environmental and social impact of the project and capitalize on the achievements to conceptualize a monitoring and evaluation system for territorial projects
A9. Develop a framework to move from a value chain approach to a landscape approach to fight deforestation in a territory
