Sustainability and Risk Management Programme (SRMP): Protection of the resource base
The SRMP is to support the protection and development of the people and natural resources including preventing crisis that can delay or interrupt development processes by promoting enabling policies, laws and regulations. Building on lessons from the 6th CP programmes on integration of energy and environment and mainstreaming of HIV and AIDs into development of policies and frameworks, as well as support to the resolution of crisis in the Niger Delta, the programme will be delivered through three sub-components: Governance of environmental resources and risks, Governance of the country response to HIV/AIDS and Conflict prevention, management and peace-building. The five major outcomes of the SRMP are:
1. Environmental governance at federal level and in selected states based on enabling policy, legal and regulatory frameworks which protect natural resources and livelihoods
2. National action on climate change – policies, institutions and financing
3. Development and implementation of gender sensitive policies to strengthen national HIV response and prevent/mitigate the impact of AIDs by relevant federal and state institutions.
4. Development and budgeting for responsive plans and programmes that address the social and economic needs in the Niger Delta.
5. Prevention and management of crisis and conflict in selected other parts of Nigeria.
The strategies for achieving these outcomes include focusing on governance dimensions of the programme’s sub-component areas; providing support to government where necessary to institute a transparent system that links up government’s plans, budgets, regulations and efforts to benefits for the citizens, and promoting innovation supported by examples of global best practices.
