Sustainable Land & Ecosystem Management (SLEM) 

 

“Policy and Institutional Reform for Mainstreaming and Up-Scaling of Sustainable Land and Ecosystem Management in India”.

The Sustainable Land and Ecosystem Management – Country Partnership Programme (SLEM-CPP) is a joint initiative of the MoEF, GOI and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and consists of seven projects being implemented in ten states in India with assistance from UNDP, FAO and the World Bank.

Technical coordination to the SLEM Programme is being provided through a Technical Facilitation Organisation (TFO) anchored at the ICFRE. The TFO has been instituted at the ICFRE under the world Bank led Medium Scale Project (MSP) entitled “Policy and Institutional Reform for Mainstreaming and Up-scaling Sustainable land and Ecosystem Management in India”. Various Divisions at the ICFRE Headquarters and its research institutes provide the requisite technical support as and when required to SLEM projects located in different parts of the country. The SLEM Project Implementation Unit at the ICFRE is headed by a Project Director under the Directorate of Extension at ICFRE headquarters.

The overall objective of the SLEM Programme is to contribute to poverty alleviation in India by promoting enhanced efficiency of natural resource use, improved land and ecosystem productivity, and reduced vulnerability to extreme weather events, including the effect of climate change. The SLEM partnership seeks to create synergy among the various SLEM project partners through sharing best practices/lessons learnt, and by providing policy recommendations to scale-up the SLEM approach in India.

The project sites cover diverse ecological zones including arid, coastal and mountainous ecosystems and address diverse aspects of land and ecosystem management including coastal agriculture, shifting cultivation, watershed management, and groundwater management. The States where SLEM-CPP is currently operational include, Uttarakhand, Nagaland, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Orissa, Himachal Pradesh and the Union Territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
