Title: Establishment of a National Environmental Engineering and Ecosystem Restoration Institute


1
Establishment of a National Environmental
Engineering and Ecosystem Restoration Institute
  • Presented by Ministry of Environment
  • Government of Pakistan

2
GEF Implementation Agency
3
Country or countries in which the project is
being implemented
  • Islamic Republic of Pakistan

4
Country Eligibility
  • Pakistan joined GEF on August 4, 1994
  • Pakistan ratified UNCBD on 26 July, 1994
  • Pakistan ratified UNCCD on 1 June, 1994
  • Pakistan ratified UNFCCC on 1 June, 1994

5
GEF Focal Area(s)
  • Biodiversity
  • Climate Change
  • Land Degradation

6
Operational Program/Short-term measure
  • Climate Change Cell
  • GEF Cell
  • National Conservation Strategy Resource Center

7
Project linkage to national priorities, action
plans, and programs
  • The Pakistan national Conservation Strategy
    (1992) recommended 14 core programme areas for
    priority implementation, including supporting
    Institutions for common Resources.
  • The mid-term Development Framework, 2005-2010
    (September 29, 2004) identifies the need to
    launch and integrate environment in formal as
    well as informal education sector, to designate
    an institution as a National Centre of
    Excellence in Environmental Education and build
    its capacity to enable it to serve as a premiere
    environmental-education training institute. The
    Framework also proposes the establishment of a
    National Institution of Biodiversity and
    Ecosystem Sciences.

Project rationale and objectives
  • Development of national policy, plans and
    programmes not only regarding environmental
    planning, pollution and ecology, but also of
    housing, physical planning and human settlements
    including urban water supply, sewerage and
    drainage.
  • Ministry is best positioned to deal with both
    brown (primarily involving pollution control
    and impact assessment) and green (biodiversity
    protection, forests, etc.) problems.
  • Ministry and other environmental stakeholders of
    Pakistan need to further develop their capacity
    to repair and sustainably maintain ecosystems.
  • One purpose of this project is to enhance the
    capability of these stakeholders for both the
    policy development and management of these green
    and brown problems and the repair and maintenance
    of ecosystems.

Project rationale and objectives
  • To accomplish this, the government is proposing
    to establish a National Ecological Engineering
    and Ecosystem Restoration Institution that will
    provide scientific support and training to the
    Ministry of Environment and other stakeholders
    involved in the broad area of ecosystem
    assessment and management in Pakistan. The
    proposed Institution will provide Ministry of
    Environment and other agencies responsible for
    maintaining and managing ecological systems with
  • Scientific information that can be used to
    improve ecosystem management strategies and to
    provide education
  • Human resource base for activities on ecosystem
    management and restoration, and
  • Training designed to enhance various agencies,
    particularly the Ministry of Environment,
    capability for ecosystem management and public
    understanding of the relationships between people
    and the ecosystems they use.

11
Expected Outcomes
  • The project expects to produce the following
    outcomes
  • A steady pool of human resource, which could be
    tapped directly by stakeholders, particularly the
    MoE, for the purpose of ecosystem management and
    ecological restoration in Pakistan.
  • The sustained strengthening of existing capacity
    within the MoE, other government institutions and
    other relevant stakeholders, on issues related to
    ecosystem management and ecological restoration.

12
Expected Outcomes
  • The collaboration development, design and
    management of projects on ecosystem management
    and ecological restoration, between the staff and
    students of the institute and the Moe.
  • Through research foundation for experimental
    management efforts that the MoE and other
    agencies might wish to pursue.

13
Planned activities to achieve outcomes
  • The proposed Institute will undertake the
    following
  • Education- to create a fill national degree
    programme on ecological engineering and ecosystem
    restoration.
  • Capacity Development- to develop existing
    national capacities, particularly the MoE, on
    issues related to ecosystem management and
    restoration.
  • Research- to analyze issues and develop projects
    and programmes for the MoE on state of the art
    issues pertaining to ecosystem management and
    ecological restoration.
