6 1. Requesting Organization TOR # 1 y 20 Name: Address: Associação dos Amigos da Natureza S. Vicente Cabo - Verde Describe the role/mandate of the organization Associação dos Amigos da Natureza (AAN), was created in 1979; formally registered under the National Register of Associations in Cape Verde. AAN is since 1996, part of the Capeverdian NGO Platform. ANN is working to promote sustainable development and environmental protection; and is fighting against land degradation and desertification, supporting land managers and farm sector to produce in an equitable technique and with no environmental harm; ANN also work on vocational training oriented towards the labour market. Land degradation is a mayor problem in Cape Verde; in some islands as Fogo, Boavista or Sao Vicente (with high extensions of volcanic land), desertification is one of the main development issues because of its adverse impact on agronomic productivity, the environment, and its effect on food security and the quality of life. AAN is aiming at minimizing land degradation in association with farmers and local communities of Sao Vicente, by improving and testing new technologies, and training their associated partners in new ways of production concerned with sustainable environment. AAN s success with farming methods has lead to increased output and the return of many farming enterprises. Farming and horticulture fit together well with the animal waste used on the land and the vegetable waste used to feed the animals. AAN is playing a vital role in the agricultural community on the island (Sao Vicente). It has already provided important information on animal husbandry and by example is leading the way to a substantial revival. It has an on-going commitment to establishing large areas of trees in a landscape that has almost no natural vegetation left. AAN, over the years, has established over 1500 ha of drought resistant trees and it is within these newly established areas that new horticulture enterprises are now starting. Year of establishment Created on 1979 Size of organization National level organization with main focus on Sao Vicente. Number of staff: 5 staff members and 150 volunteers at the main Office in Sao Vicente, and 250 volunteer members at national level. Field of activity: Environment/ Development/ Agriculture/ Vocational Training/ Social Other pertinent information: Prize Global 500 from UNEP 1989 Is your organization assisted/funded by other organizations/companies:

Assignment Terms of Reference Assignment title: Reinforce the capacity of the land managers (Farms) of Sao Vicente island, by training selected trainers, in land management conservation and hydroponics horticultural production to improve MDG 7 in Cape Verde Preamble : This post is a United Nations Volunteers programme assignment and based on the values of free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity, which are the foundations of volunteerism. Volunteering brings benefit to the individual volunteer. It makes important contributions, economically, as well as socially. It contributes to creating social cohesion and capital, through helping to build trust and reciprocity among citizens. The United Nations Volunteers is the UN Organization that supports sustainable human development globally through the promotion of volunteerism and mobilization of volunteers. It serves the causes of peace and development through enhancing opportunities for participation by all peoples. It is universal, inclusive and embraces volunteer actions in all its diversity. Volunteerism is diverse and is embedded in all cultures and traditions. In this context, as a United Nations Volunteer you are encouraged and expected to relate to local volunteerism and to be identified with the concept. You are expected to regard your national colleagues as peers and together uphold trust as volunteers among yourselves and within the communities and the organization you are assigned to. Detailed Terms of Reference (Please describe in as much detail as possible the services required from the University Volunteer(s) and how their contribution will fit into the organization s plans.) Environment is one of the main goals to achieve in Cape Verde. After several years of dryness, the country needs special and crucial efforts to fight against land degradation and continuous disappearance of environmental resources. Horticulture in São Vicente is in decline and the Capeverdian NGO of Amigos da Naturaleza (AAN) has taken the initiative to consider the future possibilities in different context. The major limiting factors that are contributing to decline horticulture are wind and water quantity and quality. With care, the effects of wind could be reduced but those of water quantity and quality are harder to solve. The over-riding problem of water shortage and its high salt content is making any expansion very slow to sustain. AAN has adopted the policy of seeking help at this critical stage. The average rainfall is mm/year falling in August to December. This level of rain is not sufficient to maintain the underlying water table. This means that wells have to be dug deeper to reach water. Wells of m deep are common. At that depth many areas have hard volcanic rock that makes hand digging impossible. Wells are then abandoned. As the water becomes deeper the level of total salts dissolved in the water increases. This is aggravated by the fact that there is little rain to dilute the water, wells are often only meter above sea level and the island is small, 270 km square and land is always close to the sea. Desalinated water supplied to the town of Mindelo has a total EC of 470. The water in the well is high in salts and makes its use a problem. This is a common factor on the island. With such limited water supplies it is essential that modern methods as drip irrigation and hydroponics way of production are adopted to reduce wastage and increase the production. 2

8 Request for a Spanish University Volunteer TOR # 1 y 20 The commercial desalinated water is expensive and piped only to the town of Mindelo. The quality is good and it would be perfectly acceptable for horticulture. The use of the desalinated water is suitable to the horticultural production only with the introduction of the new techniques and technologies of production such as Hydroponics Systems. The Hydroponics is a process that allows with, a reduced consumption of water and small physical effort, devotion and constancy, produce fresh vegetables, as well as other products as for example flowers in a small spaces, with recycled materials that could otherwise pollute the environment. This innovative model of Hydroponics System is now being empowered in Cape Verde by different multilateral and bilateral Cooperation, as for example the Spanish Agency for Cooperation (AECI), who is stimulating this specific knowledge from the Spanish Agriculture and Universities. The AAN, through its small vegetable-garden in Ribeira de Vinha, it has had a very important role, yielding its fields for assay of new technologies and new varieties that have been introduced for the national institutions of Agricultural Research and Promotion, assuming a strong role to spread some technological innovations, that can contribute to increase the offers to the market and consequently to become the products more accessible. Through this project ANN intend to set-up a demonstrative field (greenhouse) in the AAN experimental garden and train the staff and the farmers interested on new technologies and help them to set up similar structures in theirs fields. To help the country to achieve this important goal and accomplish the Millennium Development Goal 7: Ensure environmental sustainability; Nature Friend s Association (AAN) is requesting 2 UNITeS volunteers to provide with human and knowledge resources through qualified volunteers in new horticultural production system, and new technologies of land conservation, as for example: To promote and disseminate the knowledge of land conservation and new environmental friendly ways of agricultural-production in Sao Vicente. To promote the use of alternative methods for horticultural production and alternatives crops (flower); To research and compile information about new horticultural production focused on hydroponics techniques of production. To appoint and train some trainers in new land conservation and new horticultural production including hydroponics techniques of production: To train the farmers on a new conscience of land conservation and facilitate implementation; To create a training guide on these issues; To spread the message of land management and new horticultural production as Hydroponics system in the peri-urban waist of Mindelo - S. Vicente. The volunteers will work under the direct supervision of the Executive Director of AAN. Expected results: 1. A training guide and specific training material to use in different trainings. 2. A general training to farmers on land management conservation and alternative methods for horticultural production and alternatives crops (flower). 3.

15 1. Requesting Organization TOR # 3 Name: Address: Integrated Participatory Ecosystem Management in and Around Protected Areas. UNDP Project /7. (CVI/03/007/A/01/99). Project Coordination Unit. Praia, Cabo Verde Describe the role/mandate of the organization The Government of Cape Verde received funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Kingdom of Netherlands for implementation of an integrated programme in the area of biodiversity conservation. The proposed programme will conserve globally significant biodiversity through the creation of a system of protected areas encompassing a representative sample of six critical ecosystems that are unique to Cape Verde. The programme will also halt and reverse existing degradation of land and water resources within the protected areas and adjacent landscapes at the same time that it promotes the creation of income-generating alternative livelihood options. The first project (Phase I) is four year ( ). The objectives are the establishment of two protected areas, one in Serra Malagueta (Santiago) and other one in San Nicolau (Monte Gordo). Serra Malaguetta situated in Santiago Island at 100 km from the Capital Praia. The proposed Natural Park covers an area of 2600 ha and contains the highest number of endemic plant species, 14 of which are classified as threatened in the Cape Verde Red list. Endemic Fauna species include buteo bannermanij, Apusalexandri, falco tinunculus, Halcyon leucocephala and Sylvia atricapilla. This area includes the most significant forest zones on the island of Santiago. The most important threats to Serra Malaguetta are land clearance to agriculture and the disappearance of native habitat due to invasive exotic floral species. Monte Gordo situated in Sao Nicolau Island distends 30 mn by plan from the Capital Praia (Santiago). The proposed Natural Park covers an area of 3500 ha and contains 28 endemic plant species on which12 are in Cape Verde Red list. The shrub Nauplius smithii, is an endemic species exclusive of this area and is classified as critically endangered. Grazing of goats and the collection of native species for traditional ritual use constitute threats to the native vegetation, but Monte Gordo is considered one of the most pristine areas in Cape Verde. Year of establishment The first project (Phase I) is four year ( ). Size of organization National level organization. Focused on two islands: Santiago and Sao Nicolau. Number of staff 10 under the unit coordination of the project. Around 20 counting the staff of the Natural Park of Sierra Malagueta and Monte Gordo. Other pertinent information: The program is explicitly designed to undertake significant capacity building strategies to empower public and private institutions in Cape Verde in their efforts to conserve island ecosystems and undertake longterm adaptive management against potential future degradation of Cape Verde s environment. Implementation of the program will play a crucial role in achieving sustainable development and poverty alleviation. The first project (Phase I) covering will focus on capacity building, strengthening the enabling environment, obtaining concrete impacts on the ground in terms of community based natural resource management, and establishing two priority National Parks.

Volunteering brings benefit to the individual volunteer. It makes important contributions, economically, as well as socially. It contributes to creating social cohesion and capital, through helping to build trust and reciprocity among citizens. The United Nations Volunteers is the UN Organization that supports sustainable human development globally through the promotion of volunteerism and mobilization of volunteers. It serves the causes of peace and development through enhancing opportunities for participation by all peoples. It is universal, inclusive and embraces volunteer actions in all its diversity. Volunteerism is diverse and is embedded in all cultures and traditions. In this context, as a United Nations Volunteer you are encouraged and expected to relate to local volunteerism and to be identified with the concept. You are expected to regard your national colleagues as peers and together uphold trust as volunteers among yourselves and within the communities and the organization you are assigned to. Detailed Terms of Reference (Please describe in as much detail as possible the services required from the University Volunteer(s) and how their contribution will fit into the organization s plans.) Environment is one of the main goals to achieve in Cape Verde. After several years of dryness, the country needs special and crucial efforts to fight against land degradation and continuous disappearance of environmental resources. In this sense the project Integrated Participatory Ecosystem Management in and Around Protected Areas; intends to establish and protect two pilot National Parks, one in Santiago Island and other in Sao Nicolau, by empowering the local communities as to preservation of their environment, and strengthening local capacities around ecotourism and other friendly environment activities. Cape Verde is one of the countries in Africa with highest rate of non returning bachelors; At the Ministry level, but more important at the local level of the Concelhos (Departments) qualifications are low. That s why, engaging local staff in community projects without giving the possibility to be trained in necessary issues as ICT is an important subject that must be accomplished. Bringing basic expertise on ICT to the existing local staff of the project and to the key actors to local government as the Mayor staff, General Environment Delegation, Health Delegation, Education and other key actors of the communities touched by the Project; would help to improve the capacities and opportunities for all the population. To reinforce local capacities in basic ICT, and to train selected local community members, the project will increase the possibility of a sustainable environment by involving the communities in their own development, and reducing migration of middle qualify workers. The training will also contribute to sustainability; by training the local staff, to maintain a data base of natural resources of the two National Parks for a future eco-tourist web. Thus, the Project is asking for 2 UNITeS Volunteers to help the project and Cape Verde, to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 7: Ensure environmental 2
