The objective of the “Integrated Ecosystem Management of the Transboundary Areas Between Nigeria and Niger” (“IEM Nigeria Niger”) project is fully consistent with GEF-5 FA objectives for Land Degradation LD-1: Maintain or Improve flow of agro-ecosystem services to sustaining the livelihoods of local communities, LD-3 Reduce pressures on natural resources from competing land uses in the wider landscapes; for Biodiversity BD-2: Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation and sustainable use into the production landscapes, seascapes and sectors; for Climate Change CCM-5: LULUCF Promote conservation and enhancement of carbon stocks through sustainable management of land use, land-use change and forestry and Sustainable Forest Management/REDD+1 & 2 Reduce pressures on forest resources and generate sustainable flows of forest ecosystem services as Strengthening enabling environment to reduce GHG emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and enhance carbon sinks from LULUCF activities.  The project will also support activities that improve and bridge the knowledge gaps in areas of relevance to increase the resilience of the two countries to the adverse impacts of climate change on natural resources in line with UNEP activities.

The IEM Nigeria Niger project was designed as a 8 year project with two consecutive phases that was approved by the GEF Council in June 2005 and CEO endorsed on 17 August 2005. The first phase “Strenthening  of legal and institutional frameworks for collaboration and pilot demonstration of IEM” was implemented between 2006 and 2010 and succeeded in “establishing sustainable conditions for integrated ecosystem management for improvement in the livelihoods of local communities and preservation of globally significant ecosystems in the transboundary catchments between Nigeria and Niger”. An MTR of this phase completed in January 2011 evaluated project performance as “Satisfactory” and recommended continuation focusing on “implementation of cooperative and participatory management strategies for sharing natural resources to improve ecosystem functioning and rural livelihoods”.
