  13. 13. • Community Based Rangeland Management, which is an evolution of well- established Community Based Natural Resource Management approaches; e.g. HIMA • Ecosystem approaches for Integrated Rangeland and Water Resource Management; • Forest and Landscape restoration, emphasising the importance of trees in rangeland (including savannah) ecosystems; • Inter-sectoral coordination; • Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas, exploiting the potential of sustainable rangelands management as Category 5 and 6 Protected Areas. Entry points to SRM
  14. 14. Outline of Initiative • Strengthening evidence of the multiple-benefits of sustainable rangelands management (SRM); • Building partnerships and dialogue for large-scale rangeland governance; • Demonstrating and validating good practices; • Leveraging appropriate investment, including development of certification standards and payments for ecosystem services.
  15. 15. GEF 6 Strategy • Biodiversity – sustainability of protected area systems – To sustainably use biodiversity – mainstream conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity into production landscapes • Land Degradation – LD-1: Agriculture and Rangeland Systems, including SLM for Climate-Smart Agriculture – LD-2: Forest Landscape Management and Restoration – LD-3: Integrated Landscapes and Scaling up SLM – LD-4: Institutional and Policy Frameworks and Mainstreaming SLM in Development • Climate Change – Adaptation – climate smart pastoralism – Mitigation – rangelands carbon sequestration • Sustainable forest Management – Integrated land use planning – Capacity development for SFM within local communities
