  • 1. The Socio-Economic Module in CBP Contribution of ODG-UEA Professor Michael Stocking School of International Development University of East Anglia
  • 2. A challenge for the GEF  The GEF needs to demonstrate how its investments achieve Global Environment Benefits (GEBs)  Natural resource management projects claim C benefits  GEF has no standardized cost-effective methodology to assess C benefits  A methodology is needed that is comprehensible, standardized, robust and applicable to ALL GEF projects  Socio-economic rigour must cross-cut the whole CBP
  • 3. SEM needed in CBP  Modeling - focuses on estimation and forecasting of carbon stocks, flows and GHG emissions on cropland and grazing lands  Measurement & monitoring - focus on field measurement, supported by remote sensing to monitor C changes across landscapes with emphasis on agro-forestry and forestry
  • 4. Project Components Component 1: Development of standardized and integrated tools for quantification and assessment of Carbon (including C accounting) and GHG Benefits Component 2: Test Cases and capacity building (developed and tested CBP protocols using existing GEF projects in five countries) Component 3: Best practices project design (to strengthen carbon and socio-economic impacts of GEF activities) Component 4: Web and portal design (global access to tools for GEF agencies and project partners)
  • 5. Objective of SEM Module Reflected in the CBP’s objective……  Cost-effectiveness at project level  User-friendliness for project managers  Scientifically rigorous – in SE methods
  • 6. Component 1 – Methodology Development  tools for assessment of socio-economic impacts of project implementation  Methods to analyze the socio-economic benefits of SLM  Alternative land management scenarios  Sustainability of C-benefits  Sample design: indicators such as wealth, livelihood sources, coping strategies  Specification of management systems
  • 7. Component 2 – Test Cases  user views of the protocol and methods  quantifying the local non-C benefits of SLM  analyzing costs and returns from SLM interventions  sensitivity analysis to assess the impact of policy options
  • 8. Component 3 – Capacity Building & KM  support to protocol development  guidance notes on cost-effectiveness and user- friendliness  engagement of local people and communities as full partners in C tracking of interventions  assistance to capacity-building at national level in socio-economic aspects
  • 9. Component 4 – Project Management, M&E ….. etc  contribute to regular project meetings  assist with GEF needs assessment  information to review panels  scientific and technical publication
