Colombia - Sustainable Low-Carbon Development in Orinoquia Region Project (English)

The development objective of the Sustainable Low-Carbon Development in Orinoquia Region Project for Colombia is to improve enabling conditions for sustainable and low-carbon landscape planning and management in project targeted areas. The project comprises of four components. The first component, integrated land-use planning and improved governance for deforestation control will support capacity building to strengthen policy and planning instruments considering historic and future drivers of agriculture, forestry, and other land use (AFOLU) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and will contribute to improving state presence in areas affected by violence and illicit activities. It consists of following sub-components: (i) mainstreaming environmental considerations into land-use planning instruments and land tenure regularization processes at the regional and local levels in project targeted areas; and (ii) strengthening capacities for land-use regulation enforcement and deforestation control. The second component, sustainable land-use management will contribute to mitigate historical and expected increases in emissions due to unsustainable and or GHG-intensive land management practices. It consists of following sub-components: (i) strengthening public and private sector coordination and engagement for targeting low carbon development goals; (ii) strengthening the capacity of relevant stakeholders for prioritization and implementation of practices, technologies, and approaches aligned with low-carbon and climate-resilience productive activities; and (iii) designing financing and non-financing incentives to promote the adoption of low carbon and sustainable practices and technologies. The third component, definition of emission reduction program and monitoring, reporting, and verification will strengthen institutional capacities and the enabling environment to accomplish biocarbon funds (BioCF’s) requirements related to carbon accounting and social and environmental safeguards. It consists of following sub-components: (i) developing the recipient’s capacity for robust monitoring, reporting, accounting, and verification of AFOLU emissions and removals; and (ii) preparation of the Orinoquia sustainable integrated landscape (OSIL) emission reductions program. The fourth component, project coordination, management, monitoring, and evaluation will finance training, travels, consultants, and operational costs to strengthen the institutional and implementation arrangements for the project’s day-to-day operations.
