Our Approach


Steps to Success

Stakeholder involvement

At all levels, the partnership frameworks must ensure a permanent and effective circulation of information between all the actors, define the role and responsibilities of each actor in the actions to be carried out within the framework of the LDN and ensure that everyone can respect their commitments, and finally to ensure the follow-up/evaluation of actions. For the definition of LDN targets, it was necessary to identify and involve representatives of the main stakeholders in the process. Therefore, countries party to the Convention have been invited to set up a National Working Group (NWG) as a platform where interested parties can exchange information and views on the definition and execution process. LDN targets.

A coordination mechanism/platform

The National Coordinating Body and its decentralized structures, once made operational, form the basis of these partnership frameworks. At the national level, the partnership framework should have the task of monitoring/evaluating the implementation of LDN and its integration into the national economic and social development planning system. At the regional level, he must ensure the follow-up/evaluation of the actions selected and act as a relay with the national structure. At the local level, the missions of the partnership framework will consist of monitoring the implementation of LDN and ensuring the effective participation of grassroots community organizations in the programs developed for this purpose. The working group was set up as a mechanism to coordinate all partners' views on the process of setting and executing LDN targets.

Capacity Building

Guinea wants to promote research and knowledge on sustainable land management and restoration of forest landscapes through constant formation of partnerships as well as the mobilization of resources. Guinea wishes to promote research and knowledge on sustainable land management, through constant training, partnerships and resource mobilization. Government staff should have the necessary knowledge and up-to-date information on land use mapping, the main drivers of land degradation as well as solutions to reverse trends and restore degraded landscapes.


Guinea has established partnerships between the State and development actors (local populations, bilateral or multilateral aid organizations, private sectors, foundations, NGOs, etc.), in order to develop funding formulas and programs innovative techniques to fight poverty and preserve or restore the structure and functional integrity of ecosystems through methods of sustainable land management and restoration of forest landscapes in the country.
