Publication: Environment I Project (EPI) in Madagascar (1991-1995)
The objective of the project is to improve the environmental management capacity in Madagascar through the implementation of institutional development and emergency actions. Project components included: (i) protection and management of biodiversity; (ii) community-based soil conservation and watershed management; (iii) mapping and remote sensing for improved natural resources management; (iv) improved land security through cadastral surveys; (v) environmental sensitization, education and training; and (vi) research and institution building and reinforcement, (e.g., for natural forest management). Lessons learned: local participation, integration of environmental concerns into national and local decision-making and multi-donor input at the design stage increased the effectiveness of the project. The second environment project under preparation seeks to incorporate such concerns more strategically at the design stage.
