The Country Programme Document (CPD) for Turkey (2011-2015) is largely based on the Government’s Ninth Development Plan (2007-2013), which outlines Turkey’s long-term national development objectives directed at enhancing quality of life through an inclusive development process, and aligned to the new United Nations Development Cooperation Strategy (UNDCS) 2011-2015 for Turkey. Anchored around the current UNDAF mid-term review, two national MDG reports, an ongoing Assessment of Development Results (ADR) 2009 and thematic outcome evaluations, the new country programme strategy is built on the Corporate UNDP Strategic Plan (2006-2010) and the RBEC Rolling strategy (2010-2012) and developed in close consultations with the Government and the key development partners in Turkey.
Within this scope, the project will contribute to the Government’s efforts to create a bio-geographically representative national system of protected areas, as codified in the National Biodiversity Action Plan (2008). It will likewise help Turkey meet the protected area targets laid out in the Global Strategic Plan on Biodiversity 2011-2020. The project also advances the country’s commitments under the Gift to the Earth declaration, whereby the Government pledged to extend PAs in nine identified forest landscapes, currently under-represented within the PA estate, five of which are within the Mediterranean forest directorates covered under this project.
