Benin - Forest and Adjacent Land Management Project (Inglês)

Ratings for Forest and Adjacent Land Management Project for Benin were as follows: outcome was satisfactory, Bank performance was satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation quality was modest. Some of the lessons learned include: (i) An implementation period of five years would have been too short to see many of the positive changes made under the project; (ii) Participatory methods, consultative processes and systems based on traditional models (e.g., GRM), take time, but yield high returns with regard to building strong, respectful working relationships between communities and forest agents, more effectively implemented forest management plans, and a strong enabling environment for collective integrated ecosystem management; (iii) Targeted, rather than broad reaching, interventions are the most effective; (iv) Income generating activities are a strong tool for increasing access to income, empowering women, and reducing pressure on forests, but technical support is essential for effective implementation; (v) Current levels of return and the Forest Management Funds and other budgetary allocations do not supply sufficient funds for effective management; (vi) Population pressure and search for healthy soil for agriculture within the GFs is the most significant pressure on the gazetted forests and will not abate in the future due to continued pressures linked to population growth and lack of alternative employment; and (vii) Private sector interventions have shown strong returns with regard to providing needed fuelwood and timber and economic interventions in the fuelwood market have been an important first step in rationalizing the fuelwood markets.
