ESPA PROGRAMME:

Environmental Security for Poverty Alleviation - 2006-2010


Overview


The ESPA programme builds upon the IES Prototype EnviroSecurity Assessments carried out in 2004-2005 which focused on Kalimantan in Indonesia, the Virunga-Bwindi region in Africa and the Mataven area in Colombia. In the new 2006-2010 programme we continued to work to ensure that the data for each of these case studies stayed up-to-date and that we followed through on the implementation of the recommendations from these studies. Work on three additional case studies began in 2007 with the EnviroSecurity Assessments on the DRC-Congo Basin, Horn of Africa and the Mekong River Basin published at the end of 2010.
