Incubate the SKEP Coordination Unit in a flexible and learning-focused environment to identify the best long-term structures and processes for supporting the implementation of the SKEP 20-year strategy. An emphasis will be placed on capacity-building of the local SKEP coordinators employed at the sub-regional level and of local stakeholders in the context of rolling out CEPF investment in the Succulent Karoo hotspot. The core function of the Coordination Unit will be to ensure that the design, implementation and evaluation of CEPF-funded projects are feasible and contribute to overall biodiversity conservation targets.

Strategic Direction: 6 Create the capacity to catalyze the SKEP program
