UN Environment Sudan plans to implement a second phase of the Wadi El Ku Integrated Catchment Management project in North Darfur with support from the European Union. The purpose of this second project phase is to extend and scale up successful interventions, based on the first phase of the project, with the aim of improving local community livelihoods and stemming the negative cycle of environmental degradation and social tensions in the Wadi El Ku. Phase 2 will expand the geographic coverage of planned interventions both upstream and downstream of the initial project intervention area, and build on and enhance the role of the Catchment Management Forum to assume a more comprehensive watershed management approach.
The overall objective of the second phase of the project is to establish climate resilient livelihoods and reduce natural resource conflicts in North Darfur. The specific objective of the project is to further improve natural resource use and management in Wadi El Ku. Concretely, the project will aim to sustain increases in agricultural yields and related value chain productivity over the long-term while safeguarding ecosystem integrity and improving social cohesion.
To achieve the above outcome, Phase 2 will focus on four key result areas:
Result 1: A participatory, community-based catchment management system is expanded and strengthened in Wadi El Ku
Result 2: Resilient community livelihoods and local natural resource management practices improved
Result 3: Scientific and technical information is expanded and strengthened
Result 4: Awareness and application of IWRM in the rest of Darfur / Sudan increased.
Project progress and impact will be captured with the help of an M&E framework. Therefore, the project seeks to engage a Monitoring & Evaluation consultant to contribute to the design of an M&E framework and to lead on the project’s M&E activities.
