Briefly describe in the space below how the Project mainstreams environmental sustainability Environmental sustainability is at the core of project design. The project will support a wide range of government and non- government stakeholders in the target land/seascapes to take collective action for ecosystem conservation and for the sustainable utilization of natural resources to achieve global environmental benefits and sustainable livelihoods. This will be achieved by strengthening the organizational, financial, and technical capacities of communities obtaining a living from these land/seascapes to change their production practices and to act strategically and collectively in building social and ecological resilience. The project will also encourage CSO - private sector partnerships to promote the adoption of more sustainable technologies and practices, particularly the use of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies in areas where modern energy services are not available.
Part B. Identifying and Managing Social and Environmental Risks QUESTION 2: What are the Potential Social and Environmental Risks? Note: Describe briefly potential social and environmental risks identified in Attachment 1 – Risk Screening Checklist (based on any “Yes” responses). If no risks have been identified in Attachment 1 then note “No Risks Identified” and skip to Question 4 and Select “Low Risk”. Questions 5 and 6 not required for Low Risk Projects. QUESTION 3: What is the level of significance of the potential social and environmental risks? Note: Respond to Questions 4 and 5 below before proceeding to Question 6 QUESTION 6: What social and environmental assessment and management measures have been conducted and/or are required to address potential risks (for Risks with Moderate and High Significance)? Risk Description Impact and Probability (1-5) Significance (Low, Moderate, High) Comments Description of assessment and management measures as reflected in the Project design. If ESIA or SESA is required note that the assessment should consider all potential impacts and risks. Risk 1: The Project may restrict the availability, quality of and access to resources for certain groups or members of the communities when decisions are made to establish community wildlife conservancies or implement other conservation measures that imply limiting access to natural resources such as no-fishing zones I = 2 P = 3 M Several project interventions aiming at biodiversity conservation and sustainable land management involve community decisions to restrict access to certain areas or to reduce the utilization of certain natural resources To mitigate the risk decisions about land and resource use will be taken in an inclusive and participatory manner by the multi- stakeholder platforms and other community- based organizations. Land/seascape strategies and management plans will be adapted as implementation progresses.
