Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Local Communities

Project Description
The objective of the Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Local Communities Project is to strengthen knowledge and practices of targeted local communities in the select regions of the member country in REDD processes and sustainable forest management. There are three components to the project, the first component being capacity building for local communities. This component will finance capacity building for local communities. Capacity building will occur through a funnel approach and will occur in Twi, the local language. General awareness and REDD training will focus broadly on the 52 targeted communities, most of which are also FIP communities. This outreach will be followed by ‘basic training’ which will focus on a subset (at least 10 percent of the general awareness participants). Basic training is the first step that must be undertaken by community members, eligible community-based organizations (CBOs), and individuals to have a deeper, more technical understanding of REDD , and the linkage between livelihood and other activities and REDD . Basic training must be undertaken to access the grant financing. The second component is the sustainable and adaptive community initiatives. Component two includes two subcomponents: community initiatives, and technical training of the grantee in activity implementation. Finally, the third component is the project governance, monitoring, and evaluation. The aim of this component is to support the project’s effective governance and efficient monitoring and evaluation (M&E). This component will finance the management fee of Solidaridad (capped at 7.5 percent of the grant) which will cover its related administrative expenses, rent, utilities etc.
