NRMP-Natural Resource Management Programme

Background of NRMP 3.2 and the main NRMP programme

MESPT is implementing Danida Funded NRM Programme Component 3.2. The sub-component 3.2 is aligned with the development objective of the NRM programme and part of the immediate objective of component 3 which also includes CDTF as 3.1. ‘Civil society organizations - including local communities – and private sector service providers are capacitated to support and influence natural resource management, as a contribution towards poverty alleviation’. The intermediate objective of the sub-component is: ‘A viable private sector provides pro-poor oriented services for investments in small-scale management of water resources, renewable energy and the NRM related market chain’ The strategic intervention for sub-component 3.2 is to support a viable private sector to provide pro-poor oriented services for investments in small-scale management of water resources, renewable energy and the NRM-related market chain. Based on recommendations from the Africa Commission to engage the private sector as a stakeholder for development and employment creation, the NRM Programme will harness the potential for involving local business opportunities in rural areas for natural resource management and climate change adaptation. The programme focuses on specific outputs namely business opportunities, value chains and lending instruments developed for water resources, renewable energy, integrated pest management and other NRM services; and ensuring that Micro and small enterprises are operational to support implementation of NRM investments and service provisions
