NDF reviewed climate change activities co-financed by NDF and the World Bank during the first two weeks in November 2014

Two of NDF’s four ongoing projects were reviewed together with the World Bank: the Flood Risk Management Project (called Stormwater Management and Climate Change Adaptation project by the World Bank), and the Second Sustainable and Participatory Energy Management Project.

The Flood Risk Management Project (PROGEP) will improve stormwater drainage and flood prevention in peri-urban Dakar for the benefit of local residents. Implementation and progress towards the achievement of the project development objectives are satisfactory. Key indicators show that the project is well in line with its targets: by the end of 2014 it is expected that the project will have directly benefitted 32,250 people (of which 50% are female) and protected 125 ha against flooding. NDF finances development of national strategy and communal action plans, flood risk mapping and training, communication activities, and impact evaluation.

The Sustainable and Participatory Energy Management Project (PROGEDE2) contributes to increasing the availability of diversified household fuels in a sustainable and gender equitable way, and to contribute to increase the income of participating communities while preserving the forest ecosystems. Overall project implementation is progressing smoothly. NDF and the World Bank observed that procurement had speeded up relating to many important activities funded by NDF, which corresponds to what had been requested by NDF and the World Bank during their joint mid-term review mission conducted a year ago. The NDF grant supports sustainable wood fuel supply; the promotion and diversification of modern household energy (including biogas) and the use of efficient charcoal production methods; and the support the manufacturing and marketing of improved stoves.
