SUPA Component 1 aims to strengthen ASEAN and AMS to implement APMS and NAPPs through capacity-building and institutional framework along with selected tangible demonstration activities on the ground, including strengthening regional co-operation through provision of technical and material support to regional institutions on sustainable peatland management (Peatland Governance). GIZ, as the implementer of SUPA Component 1, will support ASEAN and the AMS, through capacity building, strengthening regional cooperation through provision of technical and material support to regional institutions on sustainable peatland management, and implementation of best practices peatland governance on the ground.
Component 1 of SUPA will be implemented using a multi-level approach, engaging stakeholders at regional, national, sub national and local levels Based on this intervention logic, the implementation of component 1 is structured into three work areas:
Work Area 1: Strengthening regional cooperation by strengthening ASEAN
Work area 1 supports ASEAN and Member States to gradually implement policies, such as the ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution, the ASEAN Programme on Sustainable Management of Peatland Ecosystems, the ASEAN Peatland Management Strategy (APMS) and National Action Plan for Peatlands (NAPPs) at local, national and regional level, through strengthening capacity development and identification of peatland areas in ASEAN.
Work Area 2: Specific support to ASEAN Member States for the implementation of ASEAN Peatland Management Strategy (APMS) and National Action Plan on Peatlands (NAPPs)
Work Area 2 supports state actors in ASEAN member states in implementing the APMS at the national level through projects funded on the basis of a restricted call for proposals.
