The project is financed by GEF and implemented by UNEP / GEF implementation agency. The responsibility for executing the project according to the planned goals and activities was undertaken by the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro as the UNCCD political focal point. 

The project aims at assisting Montenegro in formulating the first NAP aligned to the UNCCD 10-Year Strategy that will result in improved planning and monitoring of implementation of UNCCD on the national level for the purpose of better decision-making regarding the desertification, land degradation and drought (DLDD) and sustainable land management (SLM).
