Land Degradation Neutrality Fund Technical Assistance Facility


The five-year global GEF project titled, “Land Degradation Neutrality Fund Technical Assistance Facility,” led by Mirova in collaboration with the Global Mechanism of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and other partners will support the Technical Assistance Facility to provide project preparedness and technical assistance services to build a strong portfolio of transformative projects for the UNCCD Land Degradation Neutrality Fund (LDNF). With $2 million in GEF Financing and $4.9 million in co-financing, the project will support projects seeking investment from the LDN Fund. The TAF will provide the necessary level of support due to the highly complex nature of the sector and will ensure a solid continuum knowledge management approach through process and tools for pre-selection of projects, technical assistance services to projects and for permanent adaptation management of the TAF itself. This will be achieved through the following components: 1) Improving technical and operational processes, advising on agronomy, forestry, sustainable land management services and enhancing financial structures of LDN-eligible projects for improved agricultural practices and raise land productivity, profitability, and/or sustainability; and, 2) Knowledge management and effective project Monitoring and Evaluation.
