  • Addressing urgent Coastal Adaptation needs and capacity gaps in Angola

    This is a Least Developed Country Fund (LDCF) project that will be implemented by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and UNDP Angola. Angola´s coastline is home for more than 50% of the country´s populations, where socioeconomic and environmental challenges arise due to lack of urban planning and the rapid population growth. These challenges include inadequate access to water and electricity, poor sanitation, natural disasters such as droughts and flooding, degradation of Angola´s coastal ecosystems and increased temperatures, that decrease the income from livelihoods: agriculture and fishing for subsisting and employment.

  • Sustainable Energy for All Initiative – Rapid Assessment and Gap Analysis Report

    The “Rapid Assessment and Gap Analysis” Report presents Angola’s contribution to the global initiative to achieve “Sustainable Energy for All” (SE4ALL) by the year 2030. The objective is to ensure universal access to modern energy services, duplicate the rate of improvements in energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

  • Promoting climate-resilient development and enhanced adaptive capacity to withstand disaster risks in Angolan’s Cuvelai River Basin

    To promote the development of the Province of Cunene’s capacity to adapt to climate-related hazards is therefore an urgent priority to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change and address the region’s socio-economic and developmental challenges effectively.

  • Promotion of Sustainable Charcoal in Angola through a Value Chain Approach

    The Project aims to introduce energy-efficient charcoal technologies in Angola and trigger market demand for certified, sustainable charcoal. Energy-efficient charcoal kilns, briquetting machines and efficient stoves will be transferred to rural and peri-urban beneficiaries, thereby adding value along the chain while creating opportunities for income and job creation.

  • Expansion and Strengthening of Angola’s Protected Area system

    The Project has been designed as the second phase of a more comprehensive national programme to rehabilitate, strengthen and expand Angola’s system of protected areas. This GEF-funded project will seek to complement the first phase by (i) strengthening the capacity of the government of Angola to expand its network of protected areas, in order to meet the national expansion targets; and (ii) continuing the rehabilitation of Angola’s existing national parks, by improving the management effectiveness of Quicama, Bicuar and Cangandala NPs.

  •  Sustainable Land Management Capacity Building in Angola

    The overall objective of this project is the improved capacity in Sustainable Land Management in order to contribute to ecosystem health and functionality while at the same time enhancing the livelihoods of the rural populations in the province of Huambo, the province most affected by land degradation.

  •  National Biodiversity Project: Conservation of Iona National Park

    The project goal is to establish and effectively manage a network of protected areas to conserve representative samples of Angola’s globally unique biodiversity. The project objective is to catalyse an improvement in the overall management of the protected areas network, through rehabilitating Iona National Park.
