Global Programme for Sustainability

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

The programme supports sustainable economic growth that is both long-lasting and resilient to climate-related stressors. It does this through the integration of natural capital into decision making by governments, the private sector and financial institutions. The inability to value natural capital can undermine long-term growth and critically, the livelihoods of the poorest people dependent on ecosystems for their livelihoods. This programme directly addresses this challenge by (i) investing in data and research on natural capital; (ii) assisting countries to integrate this analysis into government policy making; and (iii) integrating these data and analysis into financial sector decision making.

This incentivisation model is complemented with direct support for critical technical assistance and capacity building activities to support cross governmental coordination for nutrition, improved data systems for nutrition and for evaluations.

Peace Research Partnership

Saferworld

Conciliation Resources, International Alert and Saferworld propose a three-year programme in which the three organisations will leverage their combined 75 years’ experience building peace across the world to provide evidence-based policy and programming recommendations to DFID and other peace, security and development actors. Through practice-based research the programme will analyse and draw lessons from interventions to address conflict drivers implemented by consortium partners and other external actors, in order to generate new understanding, practical lessons and actionable policies. It will build upon the consortium partners’ strong track record of research and programming in conflict-affected states, and their wide policy and practitioner networks. The programme will focus on issues prioritised in the UK’s SDSR and Building Stability frameworks, including economic development, peace processes, effective and inclusive institutions, and gender drivers of conflict. The purpose is to inform and enhance the effectiveness of DFID/HMG’s work to prevent conflict and build lasting peace. Programme outputs will focus on learning and adaptation of programmes, as well as providing practical lessons and actionable recommendations, targeted at relevant policy processes both nationally and internationally.

Expert Advisory Call Down Service - Accra Plastics Management Pilot

IMC WORLDWIDE

The supplier will be responsible for managing this pilot, working with the Government of Ghana, a private sector alliance (the Ghana Recycling Initiative by Private Enterprises, GRIPE) and other key actors, to address shortcomings in waste collection and management systems and mobilise investment in recycling and processing facilities. The pilot will also contribute to the aims of the Global Plastic Action Partnership, an ambitious public-private partnership which the UK has established in partnership with the World Economic Forum, and which aims to engage governments, regional bodies, international organisations, and business, as well as innovators and civil society organisations, to catalyse action at scale to tackle global plastic pollution. The pilot will build a public-private partnership aimed at tackling plastic pollution in Ghana. Action will focus on improving waste management and increasing recycling capacity in Accra by catalysing private sector investment in infrastructure and developing an evidence base for policy makers. As the partnership progresses, it will enable learning and the gathering of evidence on what works when building public private partnerships in the plastics sector, with a view to replicating the action elsewhere.

Carbon Capture and Storage Trust Fund

World Bank Trust Funds

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are potentially capable of making a significant contribution to meeting global GHG mitigation objectives. CCS is also viewed as one of the key technologies to mitigate emissions from fossil fuel power stations by up to 90 percent. Other industrial sectors (cement, iron & steel, chemicals) and the fuel production and transformation sector, with substantial GHG emissions, could also benefit from CCS development. Through this Trust Fund the World Bank Group (WBG) will play a facilitating and catalytic role for the development of CCS in Member Countries, based on a close working relationship with the major CCS initiatives and organizations. The main objectives of the Trust Fund are two-pronged and defined as follows: - To facilitate inclusion of CCS options into low-carbon growth strategies and policies developed by national institutions and supported by WBG interventions; - To support strengthening capacity and knowledge building to involve Member Countries in the international CCS forum, and to create opportunities for Member Countries to explore CCS potential, access carbon markets and realize benefits of domestic CCS technology development. The detailed concept and activities are presented in the attached Concept Note in item 5.4.

209734_DFID SHARP - Tadooud Phase 2

World Vision UK

Phase Two of the Resilience project in Tadoud. The Taadoud II program will focus on reducing food insecurity and chronic malnutrition and increase resilience in 5 States in Darfur, Sudan. Taadoud targets returnee and conflict vulnerable populations through a holistic approach of community based natural resources management (CB-NRM) that simultaneously improves agricultural production to bolster household-level food security, nutrition and income, and strengthens community-level disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation through strong community structures that are integrated with local government services. Target beneficiaries: Taadoud directly supports nearly 133,323 returnee and conflict-affected vulnerable households (HHs) that include small-scale producers (including youth and women), pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and children under five (CU5) in 291 communities in 16 localities with an integrated package of activities to promote, produce and protect food security and nutrition while building resilience of households/communities to recurrent shocks and stressors of the region. Taadoud II is expanding on the successes of Taadoud I in a number of tried and tested areas (such as adoption of project-promoted improved agricultural techniques, essential nutrition actions, savings schemes, building absorptive capacities, conflict arbitration) while further building on recent positive community-led responses to recurrent shocks and stresses.
