The programme was launched in 2005 and it supports the objectives of NEPAD's Environment Initiative.
What's happening in the Programme?
TerrAfrica's partners are assisting Sub-Saharan African countries in developing their Country Sustainable Land Management Investment frameworks (CSIF), with the support of TerrAfrica partners.

Uganda, Ghana, Niger, Ethiopia and Mauritania have completed their investment frameworks and are implementing these. Ethiopia is already quite advanced in implementing this framework. Other countries such as Mali, Senegal, Niger, Kenya and Nigeria are finalising their investment frameworks and several others such as Eritrea, Burkina Faso, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Lesotho have started the process.
