Sustainably managed pastures and healthy animals: Mongolias green gold
Company Name Swiss embassy and consular section Ulaanbaatar
Funded By Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)
Country Mongolia , Eastern Asia
Project Value 8 Million
Project Detail

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the number of livestock in Mongolia has nearly tripled – to the detriment of the countrys grasslands. The SDC is supporting an array of measures to encourage the sustainable use of pastureland, and to improve animal health and the marketing of livestock products. These efforts are helping to safeguard the livelihoods of nomadic herder families. Sustainably managed pastures and healthy animals: Mongolias green gold Mongolias vast grasslands seem to stretch for ever into the distance – but decades of overgrazing now threaten their existence. When Mongolia was under Soviet control, livestock numbers were limited to around 25 million. Since the end of state regulation they have grown to about 70 million (2017). Consequently, two thirds of rangeland – most of which is owned by the state and on which the herders livelihoods largely depend – is degraded. Many once rich pastures have given way to vast swathes of sand and stone. The animals no longer find enough food over the short summers to survive the bitter cold of winter, and many die of disease. The herders are finding it increasingly hard to make a living. In response, the SDC is supporting a number of measures under its Green Gold scheme. Green Gold, which brings together two previous projects and will run until 2020, has three main goals: More sustainable use of pastureland The project encourages nomadic herder families to work together in pasture user groups to improve the management of pastures. It also promotes written agreements setting out binding rights and obligations between the pasture users and local authorities. Better quality products – successfully marketed Herders receive advice to help them improve the quality of their products such as yak and camel wool, hides and meat. The project also creates ties between the herder cooperatives and the processing sectors, cutting out the intermediaries and increasing profits. Healthier animals Green Gold works at all levels to improve livestock health – from advising herders and vets on disease prevention and promoting immunisation campaigns to drafting and overseeing the implementation of the new act on animal health, which the Mongolian parliament passed in 2017.

REHABILITATING COMMUNAL LANDFILLS TO PROTECT BIODIVERSITY IN SAINTES
Company Name Land Communes of Haut de Terre de Bas
Funded By Agence Francasie De Development
Country Guadeloupe , Caribbean
Project Value 346,945
Project Detail

Concerned to respect the formal notice of the State to close their unauthorized landfills, the municipalities of Terre-de-Haut and Terre-de-Bas decide to undertake work of rehabilitation and renaturation of their respective landfill of the Camel and Grand Cap. These works are almost identical and consist of: cleaning and remodeling of the surface of the stormwater management revegetation of the runoff management site by the establishment of a settling pond closure of the site. IMPACTS Despite the tense financial situation of the small municipality of Terre de Bas and a more contrasted situation for the commune of Terre de Haut, the financing of these operations made it possible to meet three essential objectives: the urgency to comply European regulatory requirements by bringing two landfills into compliance with environmental, biodiversity and social standards for these two municipalities. the preservation of the attractiveness of the territories, strongly dependent on tourism.

Unravelling species barriers of coronaviruses
Company Name EIDGENOESSISCHES DEPARTEMENT DES INNERN
Funded By European Union
Country Switzerland , Western Europe
Project Value 187,420
Project Detail

Objective "Human coronaviruses (CoVs) are distributed worldwide and cause a significant percentage of all common colds. Most of these viruses presumably emerged through zoonotic transmission, have adapted to the human host, and are now known to cause mild upper respiratory tract infections. However, the more recent zoonotic transmission of the highly pathogenic Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) have demonstrated the potential of coronaviruses to also cause highly severe human diseases and are associated with a high mortality. The precise mechanisms that allow coronaviruses to jump across species barriers are only poorly understood. "COV RESTRIC" aims to unravel species barriers of coronavirus infections and to uncover basic host cell mechanisms preventing a transmission across different species. We hypothesize that conserved restriction factors exist between different species which limit viral replication and which need to be overcome via viral evasion and adaptation strategies in order to establish a zoonotic infection. These may include the lack or genetic incompatibility of essential viral replication co-factors as well as the presence of antiviral restriction mechanisms. We will use two complementary genetic screening approaches to identify unknown coronavirus restriction factors. Once we have identified possible candidates, we will analyze them for their cross-conservation employing coronaviruses from different species, such as human, bat and camel virus isolates, as well as the respective primary cell culture material originating from the authentic host. This approach will help to rigorously define species barriers to viral transmission which should promote future development of preventive and therapeutic strategies to combat emerging RNA virus infections in humans."

Measures to Combat Drought in the Lowlands of Ethiopia

Funded By Other Funding Agencies
Country Ghana , Western Africa
Project Value Plz Refer Document
Project Detail

The Afar region is one of the least developed regions in the Ethiopian lowlands. With a population of just under 1.5 million, more than half of the people in the region, known as Afar, live below the absolute poverty line. Due to extreme conditions, the hottest temperatures in the world, low rainfall, little arable land and limited access to water, the majority of the population depends on semi-nomadic livestock farming (pastoralism) to make a living.

This economic system, which had been adapted to the local conditions, is coming under increasing pressure. The effects of climate change, with increasing droughts and exceptional rainfall events, and population growth are giving rise to a shortage of natural resources. Weak institutions and current development strategies take little account of the specific characteristics of the semi-nomadic lifestyle and ecological conditions in the region.

Objective
The semi-nomadic population (pastoralists) in the Afar region has reliable access to, and can make more intensive use of, natural resources such as water, land and pastures. The drought resilience of the affected communities is strengthened.

Approach
The programme is currently working in five districts in the western Afar region with a population of approximately 300,000: around 265,000 live in rural areas, including 120,000 women. The majority of the population depends on pasture farming and, to a lesser extent, arable farming for their living. The main sources of livelihood are herds of camels, cows, sheep and goats, whose feed is increasingly at risk.

GIZ experts advise Ethiopian partners whose aim is to improve the work of the responsible institutions at a national, regional, district and village level. Initial measures are concentrating on planning land use with all users and authorities, ensuring access to soil and water, improving pastures, safeguarding migration corridors for herds and promoting income-generating measures such as the fattening of sheep.

Initial measures are focusing on improving watersheds through soil and water storage activities and building small-scale irrigation systems for the cultivation of food and animal feed. This should increase the availability of food and animal feed and generate additional income through its sale. Around 11,000 Afar will benefit from these measures.

Preparations are under way for further measures such as improving pastures, combating harmful, fast-spreading, non-native, plants and safeguarding migration corridors for herds. All activities are planned by the communities in conjunction with the traditional representatives of the pastoralists, civil society organisations and the authorities.

At a regional and federal level, the programme helps the Ethiopian government to work with international development partners to better coordinate development measures.

The programme is conducted jointly by GIZ and KfW Development Bank.
