The Government of Angola has sought UNDP support to implement the Project Preparation Grant (PPG) for the UNDP-GEF full-sized project “Combating Illegal Wildlife Trade and Human Wildlife Conflict in Angola”. The project seeks to strengthen biodiversity conservation in Angola by reduce illegal wildlife trade and human wildlife conflict and has four components: 1) Strengthening the systemic and institutional framework for combatting IWT, 2) Strengthening the management effectiveness of the existing national PA estate, 3) Reducing IWT and poaching, and HWC, at site level, and 4) Gender mainstreaming, knowledge management, and M&E. The GEF resources allocated to the project amount to US$ 4,603,161 (including Project, PPG and UNDP Fee).
The GEF Council approved the Project Identification Form on 30 October 2017. Project development now will include a preparatory phase in the form of a Project Preparatory Grant (PPG). During the PPG, a team of international consultants together with the UNDP Country Office in Angola and the responsible UNDP-GEF Regional Technical Advisor – and working in close collaboration with key government officials, donors, NGOs and CBOs – will undertake literature reviews, studies, stakeholder consultations and field visits, with the view to further develop the approved PIF into a fully formulated project ready for implementation.
The UNDP Country Office in Angola will lead the PPG/IP, in close coordination with the Ministry of the Environment of Angola. The Key Expected Outputs of the PPG/IP will be a technically robust UNDP Project Document (PRODOC) and a Request for CEO Endorsement package ready for submission to the GEF Secretariat. The preparatory phase will moreover fully determine the baseline and GEF incremental benefits, confirm the lead national implementing agency, identify further implementing partners and responsible parties, and negotiate and define implementation arrangements. Consultation with stakeholders relevant for project activities will put emphasis on building the partnerships required for realizing the project’s objectives and the mobilization of co-financing. The national consultation process will also include the local communities that are expected to benefit from the Project, and address gender issues as well as social and environmental safeguards as indicated.
Considering the above PIF approval date and the 18-month milestone established by the GEF, the GEF CEO Endorsement Request package and PRODOC must be submitted to the GEF by 29 May 2019. Failure to meet this deadline will lead to automatic cancellation of the project by the GEF. The PPG team (which includes the PPG consultants, the Government of Angola, UNDP Angola and the UNDP-GEF regional support team) is requested to submit final draft versions for internal clearance to UNDP at the latest two months before this deadline (i.e. by 29 March 2019). Subsequent revisions addressing UNDP-GEF or GEF Secretariat queries may be required and are part of the PPG. The final submissions to the GEF will require prior government validation and clearance. Submission to the GEF will only be effected after all due clearances have been obtained.
