For two days (July 8th and 9th, 2021), the actors involved in the implementation of this budget program 088 “environmental governance and sustainable development” will analyze two projects and programs. These include the Ecosystem-based Adaptation Project (EBA-FEM) which is in its closing phase and the Program for the Improvement of Sustainable Rural Livelihoods in the Boucle du Mouhoun and Centre-Ouest Regions (PAMED/BMH-CO) which is starting its cruising speed.
During this special session, they will first examine the minutes of the first ordinary session of the 2020 budget program review committee and the 2020 annual report of the PAMED/BMH-CO project. The last item that will be discussed during these two days of work is the review of the closing documents of the ABE-GEF project.

This framework, noted Mr. Kaboré, is an opportunity to learn more about the activities of PAMED
Presiding over the opening ceremony, the Secretary-General of the Ministry of the Environment, Augustin Kaboré, went through each project step by step. Regarding the ABE-GEF project, he said that it has been implemented for five years through an innovative approach called “ecosystem-based adaptation”. In addition to protection against the impacts of climate change, he continued, ecosystem-based adaptation involved the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of a comprehensive adaptation strategy to help people cope with the adverse effects of climate change. The design and implementation of this project also provided an opportunity to incorporate and add value to several lessons learned from the implementation of several projects, he said.
He added that although the ABE-GEF project is coming to an end, the effects of climate change are still intact and pervasive. That is why he called on the partners to accompany them further in their common commitment to fight against climate change. To conclude, he also reassured that the Ministry in charge of the Environment will ensure that the achievements of this project are safeguarded and perpetuated.
As for the PAMED-BMH-CO project, Augustin Kaboré emphasized that it is a follow-up to the partnership program for sustainable land management that was implemented in 2010. “This program intends to contribute to reducing the growing vulnerability of rural populations in the targeted areas through structuring actions and it covers the period from 2020-2024,” he said.
This framework, noted Mr. Kaboré, is an opportunity to learn more about the activities of PAMED through its 2020 annual activity report. However, it should be noted that if the implementation of these two projects has been effective on the ground, it is undoubtedly thanks to UNDP which financed them. Represented (UNDP) during this session by the environment program officer, Clarisse Coulibaly, who expressed her satisfaction with the ABE-GEF project nearing its end. According to her, the lessons learned during its implementation are very interesting and they will be used for other projects such as PAMED which has just started.
