The WWF-GEF project, Integrated Landscape Management to Secure Nepal’s Protected Areas and Critical Corridors Project (PIMS 9437) - ILaM will be executed by the Ministry of Forests and Environment (MOFE), Government of Nepal. Under MOFE, DOFSC and DNPWC are the major two departments, responsible for implementing the project’s interventions. The local community groups (e.g., Community Forest User Groups, Buffer Zone User Committees, Buffer Zone Community Forest User Groups), municipalities and state government agencies (e.g., Ministry of Industry, Tourism, Forests and Environment, Division Forest Offices) will be key partners for the implementation at local and state level. MOFE will be responsible for communicating with the national GEF Operational Focal Point (OFP) regarding the status of project implementation. WWF as the GEF implementing agency will communicate and coordinate with GEF secretariat as appropriate. The Project Advisory Committee (PAC) and Project Executive Committee (PEC) and Project Management Unit (PMU) will constitute the overall governing bodies for the project. The overall project execution arrangements are shown in below. The key function of PAC is strategic guidance and provide enabling/facilitation for effective implementation across all levels of the government structure. Likewise key function of PEC is linking PMU with PAC, endorsement of annual workplan/progress/financial report, and facilitate coordination at all levels(federal, state, and local).
