Across Sudan, local communities are facing a number of processes of environmental change, including climate change, drought, population movement, and in places, conflict. These threaten the natural resource base for livelihoods.
Community Environmental Management is a method for improving the sustainable and equitable governance of natural resources at the local level. These approaches use Community Environmental Action Plans (CEAPS) to assess needs and strengthen overall community management of natural resources. The CEAP methodology was pioneered by UNHCR in Eastern Sudan, and UNEP has extended the approach to Darfur.
UNEP is working together with local and international Civil Society Organisations (CSO’s), and state ministries, to prepare model CEAPs which can be replicated elsewhere.
