Background to the GIZ/SADC supported SADC TFCA CCA Training Programme

  1. 1. Page 1 Background to the Development & Implementation Process of the Climate Change Adaptation Trainings targeting SADC TFCAs Dr. Wibke Thies, Project Coordinator GIZ SADC Transboundary Use & Protection of Natural Resources
  2. 2. Page 2 The SADC Programme for Transfrontier Conservation Areas Component 3: Capacity building for TFCA stakeholders • It recognises that building capacity of key TFCA stakeholder groups is crucial for successful TFCA development & management • Key activity: development and implementation of regional training programmes for TFCA stakeholders
  3. 3. Page 3 Component 6: Reducing vulnerability of ecosystems and people to the effects of climate change • Recognizes: the vulnerability of ecosystems and communities living in and around TFCAs towards climate variability and climate change • Objective: to support the development of climate change mitigation & adaption measures within TFCAs • Key activities: • enhancement of knowledge about climate change amongst TFCA managers and local communities • development of systems to monitor the impacts of climate change and variability on biodiversity, ecosystems and local livelihoods • development of adaptation measures The SADC Programme for Transfrontier Conservation Areas (cont.)
  4. 4. Page 4 Training Needs Assessment (SADC, KfW, GIZ, January 2013) Study on Training needs of wildlife managers and rangers in TFCAs (SADC, KfW, GIZ: January 2013) Findings: • Lacking systems to continuously update curricula and trainer capacity according to needs of training purchasers. • Higher Certificate / Diploma exit levels: insufficient training of trainers; lacking workplace relevance of training • Need for specific knowledge on any cross-border issues
  5. 5. Page 5 Moreover…. • …. There is need for improved collaboration amongst stakeholders, especially across borders • …. Creation of fora for dialogue on issues that matter, climate change adaptation being one of them • …. Climate change is an issue that becomes more relevant and poses a more ‘real’ threat on a day-by day basis
  6. 6. Page 6 The CCA - Trainings Goal: • To equip TFCA personnel with the skills, approaches, mind set and consciousness • Encourage them to conduct climate change adaptation activities in their respective TFCAs • Encourage them to integrate these into their management plans Specific Objective: • To develop a model curriculum, an implementation mechanism and a sustainability approach that enhances capacity for environment, sustainability and climate change adaptation amongst TFCAs leaders, practitioners and managers in the SADC region
  7. 7. Page 7 The CCA – Trainings (cont.) Indicator (as of SADC-GIZ project): • At the end of May 2015 (end of project phase I) 80% of trained TFCA and park managers shall have increased their capacities • to deal with climate change adaptation • to integrate it into TFCA management • to transfer the knowledge to communities
  8. 8. Page 8 Role of WESSA/SADC REEP • SADC REEP is a SADC Centre of Excellence • will develop and implement this model training course for the TFCAs in the SADC region (financial support through SADC- GIZ project) • Will guarantee sustainability of the course offered • SADC REEP has inter alia: suitable institutional capacity, expert knowledge on the subject of CCA, innovative training methodologies, good regional positioning and is well- networked
  9. 9. Page 9 Other Human Capacity Development measures by the SADC – GIZ Project Training for TFCA stakeholders on cross-border integrated fire management Mobile training offered by the Southern African Wildlife College on specific trans-boundary issues such as veterinary questions, border control, fire management, anti poaching, etc. Training on developing, budgeting and managing projects on „Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+)“ (not focussed on TFCAs)
