Under this Joint Programme Component (JPC), support would be provided to the government and key stakeholders to better manage water resources, wetlands, water-sheds and forests through and integrated and participatory approach. Thus, support would be provided in the areas of policy formulation, development of local level plans, capacity building and by launching demonstration projects.

All of these activities are in line with the objectives of the National Environmental Policy, National Conservation Strategy, Draft National Forest Policy, Pakistan’s Biodiversity Action Plan, National Action Programme to Combat Desertification, and other related policies of the  Government of Pakistan. These activities also allow Pakistan to meet its obligations under Goal 7 of the MDGs and ensure better compliance with the  Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) signed by Pakistan.

United Nations’ support under this JPC would adopt  an integrated and participatory approach while  aligning  it directly with the National Environment Policy, Medium Term Development Framework, National Perspective Plans, Vision 2030, National MDGs targets, United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, national targeted programmes and provincial and district level plans and programmes to  conserve natural resources sustainably.

Project Objectives: The overall objective of the Project is to assist in soil and water conservation by strengthening community capacity to mitigate the adverse climatic and human induced impacts and manage the environmental conditions of the area.. The main objective of this project is demonstration of the concept of Integrated Soil and water conservation in selected villages of Satbani and Hangrai Union Councils in Balakot, District Manshra. Specific objectives are: 

  • Build and strengthen community capacity through learning by doing/demonstration for soil and water conservation.
  • Introduce cost effective and easily adoptable techniques for soil and water conservation and slope stabilization.

The project would be an extension of already ongoing project which aimed at providing integrated improved soil and water conservation measures through strong community participation for livelihood improvement and environmental sustainability in Earthquake-Affected Areas of North West Frontier Province. This would support the government’s ongoing assistance programme in the earthquake affected areas as well.

The activity is also part of JPC-3 Annual Work Plan 2009 planned to carryout under the output-1 of Joint Programme Environment Outcome-3 “Integrated Natural Resource Management in Demonstrated Regions”.

Furthermore, the activity would also help in achieving UNDAP Environment Outcome 1: Improved living conditions through environmental management for sustainable development aligning with National Environment Action Plan outcome “To initiate actions and programmes for achieving a state of the environment that safeguards public health, promotes sustainable livelihoods, and enhances quality of life of the people.”
