Annex 1: Detailed Application Template in the Online Application, Both for the Narrative and Financial Proposals

Caspian Green Pack as an instrument of public awareness and environmental education on water and water-related issues in the Caspian Sea region of Kazakhstan (Atyrau, Mangistau and Uralsk oblasts)”

1. What are the problems/issues/opportunities in your community with regards to water, sanitation or climate change related to at least one of the project components (200 words max.)

Access to drinking water, water management, water supply and sanitation are on the top of the agenda for Kazakhstan. Measures to protect the environment in the Caspian Region are integrated in all key governmental, sectoral and regional programs. To address the need in building the country’s environmental capacity and preserving region’s unique ecosystem, plans were drafted to facilitate accelerated ‘green development’ of the economy in the Caspian region, with the harmony of economic, environmental and social pillars of sustainable development (SD).

When promoting responsible water use and management, ensuring access to drinking water, protecting water sources and human health, it is especially important to foster public awareness, environmental education (EE) and education for sustainable development (ESD).   President Nazarbayev N.A. stated in his address to the people of Kazakhstan that ‘Good education should become a foundation for the industrialization and innovative development of Kazakhstan’.

Development of up-to-date educational resources which target not mere knowledge transmission but development of ESD skills and competences of teachers and students is one of key tasks when promoting EE and ESD in Kazakhstan. In this sense, adaptation of the CD ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’ for the Caspian Region of RK and creation of the ‘Caspian Green Pack for Kazakhstan’ can make a significant contribution into implementation of Green Bridge Initiative and Zhasyl Damu Program.

2. Who are the main stakeholders in your country in relevance to the issues discussed above?

  • Main stakeholders are educators from education departments at the city and oblast level, teachers from general schools, methodologists from oblast institutes for advanced training (OIAT) at three oblasts of the Caspian region: Atyrau, Mangistau and Uralsk, NGOs, business sector and community of the region.

  • The Project will invite European and Kazakh experts in the field of environmental awareness, SD and ESD, government agencies, NGOs and mass media. With NGO participation and mass media reports on the project progress, people living in the Caspian region will be better informed about SD priorities, synergy between three SD pillars: environmental, economical and social, and importantly about water problems in the Caspian region and their linkage with global problems. The Caspian business will be invited to collaborate and in future will be able to provide further support for project’s target groups.

  • The basis for project implementation was created in 2011: on December 6-8 CAREC with the support of OSCE Centre in Astana conducted an inception workshop on promotion of the ‘Green Pack for CA’ in the OIAT of Mangistau oblast.

  • For the purpose of this project we can use the UNECE document ‘ESD Competences for Educators’ as an additional possibility to implement UN approaches to education and educators’ competencies development as part of ESD for educators of the Caspian Region.

3. How can we contribute to the solution of the issues mentioned above through Every Drop Matters partnership initiative by pilot projects?
The project team will work in close collaboration with all main stakeholders of the Caspian region on raising awareness of youth and local communities as well as building environmental capacity on the issues of access to drinking water, trans-boundary waters management, and protection of human health, and climate change. This will help in protecting water sources and human health, and preserving region’s unique ecosystem of the region.

Plans were drafted to promote the issues which are priority for the Caspian Region:

  1. Adapting the CD ‘Green Pack for CA’ to priorities of the Caspian Region and development of a new resource namely:

    • selection of the topics which are priority for the new resource ‘Caspian Green Pack’,

    • writing new topics for the ‘Caspian Green Pack’,

    • selecting new photos for the ‘Caspian Green Pack’,

    • writing and designing new dilemma games for the ‘Caspian Green Pack’,

  1. The Project plans to deliver PR events:

    • Press conferences in the Caspian region and Astana with participation of famous scientists, water experts, ecologists, journalists, NGOs, businesses.

    • Preparation and dissemination of newsletters, e-newspapers, publications in mass media.

Experience of similar actions, in relation to role in the implementation of the proposed action

  1. In 2009-2010 CAREC and REC prepared the ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’ with the support of UNESKO Almaty, OSCE Center in Astana, Shevron and SGP GEF UNDP.

  2. In 2011 the ‘Green Pack’ underwent the expertise by the Ministry of Education and Science of Kazakhstan and was recommended to be used in the educational process.

  3. On 27 September 2010 it was presented at the side-event ‘Green Agenda: ESD in the Central Asian Network’, VI Ministerial Conference on Environment and Development in Asia and Pacific Region (MCED-6), in Astana.

  4. In 2011 CAREC in cooperation and with support of UNESСO Almaty delivered national workshops in RK, KR and RT on testing the Green Pack for Central Asia.

  5. In 2011-2012 about 300 schools of RK, KR and RT, 3000 teachers and several thousands of students got access to the ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’.

  6. On 6 - 8 December 2011 in Aktau, CAREC with the support of OSCE Center in Astana delivered a workshop for educators of the Caspian Region on promoting the ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’.

  7. The project aims to contribute to promotion of issues which are priority for the Caspian region: water, access to drinking water, water resources management, trans-boundary rivers management and water-related issues: human health protection, climate change, biodiversity through enhancing capacities of school teachers, public awareness raising, outreaching and educating the region’s population.

C. Estimated Impacts
Impacts are the effect of the project on its wider environment, and its contribution to the wider objectives in the long run. Please summarize the project’s likely impact to the target group(s), whether the project has a potential to replicate and/or scaling-up. If there is a dissemination or replication strategy proposed, please explain.
It is planned:

  • To transfer the innovative EE and ESD technology through the multimedia CD-ROM ‘Caspian Green Pack’ in Kazakh language,

  • To transfer the methodology on adapting the ‘Green Pack’ to the region’s specifics and to develop the Green Pack for the Caspian Region of Kazakhstan. Further on Kazakh experts can transfer the valuable experience to local communities of the Caspian Region via workshops,

  • To reflect the issue of responsible use and management of water resources, access to drinking water, protection of water sources and human health,

  • To try to engage local mass media and integrate the resource into local public awareness raising programs for water saving and climate change: in radio broadcasts, TV programs, school activity program.

  • To use the resource at natural sciences lessons in schools (geography, chemistry, biology, physics, ecology), including the cross-subject principle,

  • The Green Pack underlines the need to embed new values in students and to establish a new behavioral model at school, home and society to substitute mere knowledge accumulation on certain environmental issues.

  • The ‘Caspian Green Pack’ will be the local educational resource which will help teachers and educators to actively promote values of green development in local communities, and after the project teachers will be able to promote it at rural communities, small towns and villages of the region.

D. Project sustainability:
Sustainability means the continuation of the project outputs and impacts after the closing of the EDM Grant Project. This section shall explain how the results and impact of the proposed project will continue after the conclusion of the Fund’s support. What characteristics of your project will help ensure that its results and development impact are sustainable? Please define how the proposal will secure the sustainability in financial, institutional, communal or policy levels. Describe any major challenges that your project may face to sustain its results.

  • In the course of project implementation and promotion, CAREC in coordination with partners will establish cooperation with CASPECO project for information exchange and promotion of the final project outcome.

  • Programme ‘Green Pack for CA’ has been sustainable in the period from 2009 and until now from the standpoint of cooperation among various stakeholders: CAREC, REC of Hungary, NGOs of Kazakhstan and CA countries, UNDP, OSCE Centre in Astana, SGP GEF UNDP, UNESCO Almaty, and Chevron.

  • Importantly, the project sustainability is ensured by the fact that the project methodology was developed in close collaboration of the project’s working group with MES and MEP. In March 2011 the CD-ROM ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’ successfully underwent the expertise by the Ministry of Education and Science (MES) of Kazakhstan and was recommended to be used in the educational process in schools of Kazakhstan. The same approach will be used in the process of project implementation in the Caspian region. So, the institutionalization of this approach will be ensured.

  • CAREC through its partners in REC network (Russian, and Caucasus RECs) will promote outcomes of this project on a wider scale: entire Caucasus region: Russia, Azerbaijan, and through branches of CAREC in CA countries.

  • Within an existing CA network on ESD, CAREC has an opportunity to replicate the experience in all CA countries region, making it possible to adapt the methodology ‘Green Pack for Central Asia’ to local priorities and conditions and project outcomes will be promoted in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

  • As the Green Pack includes 25 SD topics and various educational resources (CD-ROM, dilemma game, video, manual, and so forth), there is an opportunity for its adaptation, translation into national languages and development of additional materials for various regions of RK and CA.

Project co-financing

Partnership experience with international organizations and a government sector also gives a hope that the programme will get additional support in future (such partners as SGP GEF UNDP, OSCE Center in Astana, Goethe Institute, MEP RK, expressed their interest in supporting various components of the Program ‘Green Pack for CA’):

  • CAREC prepared a request for RK government budget funds for adaptation and translation of the ‘Green Pack for CA’ into Kazakh language and development of a bilingual CD in 2013-2014,

  • Goethe Institute is interested in supporting the topic ‘Mountains and glaciers’ and adapting the ‘Green Pack for CA’ in this direction, and develop Teacher’s Manual on these issues for 3 CA countries: RK, KR and RT.

  • SGP GEF UNDP is interested in a technical component, for instance implementation of energy efficient technologies in schools of the Caspian region.

  • So, it worth saying that this project even after its completion will be still interesting and attractive for other partners and donors, as well as all countries in CA region for whom Caspian problems are relevant.
