River Partners: Applying Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) in the Lukaya Basin, Democratic Republic of the Congo
United Nations Environment Programme

In 2013-2016, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the European Commission (EC) supported a pilot demonstration project on Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The Eco-DRR project aimed to reduce flood and gully erosion risks and support community livelihoods through applying Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) in the Lukaya River basin, located in the outskirts of the capital Kinshasa. The project clearly demonstrated that Eco-DRR can be successfully applied through an IWRM framework. The overall success of the field demonstrations is evident by the strong community uptake of the interventions for their multiple benefits, including soil stabilization, flood and gully erosion risk reduction, as well as boosting agricultural yields and household incomes.

The Use of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) in Sudan
United Nations Environment Programme

This study demonstrates that liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) use in Sudan is on a slow ascendancy, due in particular to government incentives, investment by LPG companies in distribution infrastructure and dissemination efforts made by private, public and non-governmental organizations. LPG use remains, however, concentrated in the central region of the country. This has been attributed to high population density, the high price of woodfuel, greater awareness and infrastructure development. This report evaluates the efforts to date to support the adoption of LPG use across the country, and looks to highlight the constraints currently blocking its widespread use.The study analyses a range of case studies of LPG promotion initiatives across Sudan, recognizes the main barriers for the widespread national use of LPG, and proposes recommendations.
