Description

The project is an integral part of the GEF- Mid-Size Project “Establishment of Mechanisms for Integrated Land and Water Management in the Tisza River Basin”. This pilot and demonstration component will aim at developing, implementation and evaluation of a transboundary community-led project that promotes sustainable development through integrated land and water management practices at the community level.


The demonstration project’s objective is to yield valuable insights and lessons, which will serve to inform the TDA/SAP process of the umbrella GEF- project, as well as other transboundary integrated land and water management projects through out the region and globally. The focus of the project will be on community-driven governance interventions, encouraging community ownership of project activities and outcomes. The demonstration project’s approach is to identify and implement interventions that tackle socio-economic challenges and enhance opportunities for the local population (and vulnerable groups in particular), while at the same time resulting in improved environmental conditions. The lessons learnt and project implementation mechanisms tested will be incorporated into the SAP and NAPs, to be replicated in future local and community-level projects. This project also serves to inform the larger international waters project community, and it is hoped that it will be possible to replicate the successes of this project when and where possible through out the region, and abroad.
