Abstract

The concept of 'development corridors' is increasingly used to support economic growth in Africa, driven by international as well as national interests. Development corridors have tremendous development potential yet they face significant challenges. These include uneven development impacts, traversing so-called "underutilised" lands that are generally already populated and managed, and vulnerability to climate change. Such challenges result in a lack of appropriate research capacity in the region. This proposal aims to addresses these challenges through engagement with decision makers and by developing relevant capacity within research institutions and researchers in eastern Africa, China and the UK. The research is targeted to generate decision-relevant evidence and feed it into key decision making processes in order to improve the sustainable development outcomes of investments in development corridors.

The proposal is focused on corridors in eastern Africa, particularly the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT) and the Lamu Port and Lamu-Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport Corridor (LAPSSET) in Kenya. The consortium is led by the United Nations Environment Programme-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), who would be contracted as 'WCMC', and comprises five universities (Cambridge, London School of Economics, Nairobi, Sokoine University of Agriculture and York) and three boundary agents (World-Wide Fund for Nature (Tanzania), African Conservation Centre (ACC) and the China National Centre for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC) of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). The work is structured around three outcomes and six Work Packages, fully integrating research and capacity development, and significant policy engagement and outreach.

Planned Impact

Together the members of our consortium members are extremely well linked into a number of different mechanisms and processes that will deliver direct impact through the generation of timely, decision relevant research in the short and medium term. We also envisage a longer term impact through a legacy of early-career researchers, senior research leaders, and institutions trained in three different regions who would be available to work with other countries and agencies on issues related to large scale development corridors and how best to plan and implement them in the developing country context, especially in Africa.
At the national scale WWF-Tanzania and ACC in Kenya are members of the SAGCOT and LAPSSET corridor management structures and hence have a direct voice in these bodies. This project will strengthen their roles in these agencies and allow their input to be informed by relevant, demand-driven research for the specific corridor areas. We see this engagement as a critical part of the impact pathway to influence the decisions made around the current set of development corridors. The likelihood of this happening is strengthened through the commitment by SAGCOT to using the project results.
In China, researchers have been called upon by central government to support the implementation of the country's 13th Five Year Plan, including the country's overseas development assistance and foreign investment such as the Belt and Road Initiative. The country is seeking institutional capital development to ensure that these funds are invested in a sustainable manner in order to realise its international commitments, including the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. NCSC houses many of the researchers who have been tasked with providing such support to central government. It sits within China's leading economic and development ministry, NDRC, and therefore has extensive convening power across a range of relevant government departments and research institutes. This influence, together with NCSC's experience of South-South Cooperation mechanisms, actively promoting knowledge sharing on climate resilient sustainable development, means that the capacity built will influence China's growing corridor investment in East Africa and other target countries of the Belt and Road Initiative.
At international scale, collectively, the UK-based partners will be able to work through their excellent networks within the UN system, within national governments in East Africa and China, and with both academic and civil society partners to present the project results so that they can inform the design of development corridors in other countries. For example, UNEP-WCMC will be able to disseminate the results to the East African Community via the UN Economic Commission for Africa and to the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment. UKAID supported work (through the Darwin Initiative) on mainstreaming biodiversity into national development plans, including through an African Leadership Group, will also contribute to upscaling project results to additional African countries.
UNEP-WCMC is also working to support countries in delivering on the SDGs, in particular recognising the environmental dimension to multiple SDG targets including those related to agriculture, water, growth, infrastructure, cities, and climate change. UNEP-WCMC and WWF are also working with the extractive, oil and gas, agriculture, and marine transport industries to integrate natural capital into their operations. These industries are often at the heart of growth corridor development. Both UNEP-WCMC and WWF will use this experience to build the capacity of researchers in Kenya, Tanzania and China to make the business case for the integration of natural capital into corridor design.

Title DCP Animation 
Description In this short animation, we show how and why the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) is working towards African development corridors that are designed for people and the planet. Development corridors that sustain and conserve nature, and are people-centred, would have the capacity to create optimal opportunities for, and reduce risks to, sustainable development and societal well-being: Development corridors have the potential to diversify and improve livelihoods by making trade, communications and services more efficient. However, they also pose a real risk of disadvantaging and excluding important stakeholders who might not have enough capacity to meaningfully participate in corridor planning and implementation processes and defend their interests. To minimise such risks and maximise potential benefits, corridors must be planned and implemented through an integrated approach using sound policies, plans and practices. While achieving economic goals, development corridors need to protect the integrity of ecosystems and biodiversity, and respect and protect the needs, rights and livelihoods of communities from the earliest stages of planning and throughout the implementation of their development activities. Without balancing these different development and sustainability priorities, it will not be possible to coherently deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Year Produced 2019 
Impact Population growth, climate change and environmental degradation are just some of the challenges facing communities around the world over the coming decades.  One group of people that are particularly under pressure due to their traditional free-ranging livelihoods are pastoral populations in Africa - such as the Fulani, the Maasai and the Samburu. To address these challenges, interdisciplinary research at the University of York has been investigating human-environment interactions in East Africa, to assess the sustainable use of the local environment and resources. Some of this ongoing research was highlighted as part of an exhibition in the JB Morrell Library which presents the complex concept of climate change in a way that makes it accessible for a non-specialist audience. Exhibition viewers experienced different ways of investigating socio-environmental transformations and different voices from Kenya and Tanzania, taking them closer to stories on the environmental changes and its social, political and historical contexts. To further explore the variety of research being undertaken, a talk and panel debate took place. This explored some of these challenges facing pastoralists, and discuss the value, and future development, of research from the project.

Description The work of the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) has improved the rigour, relevance and quality of interdisciplinary development corridor research and built capacity to help decision-makers plan and implement corridors that are more sustainable, climate resilient, nature positive and inclusive. Of the six outcomes in the project's Theory of Change, DCP has achieved significant progress:

Enhanced capacity of researchers, institutions and networks within and among Kenya, Tanzania, China and the UK: DCP has hosted over 40 internal training workshops for members of the partnership, including an 11-session 'Translating Research to Impact' training programme in 2021.

Equitable partnerships created at national to global scales. Our surveys show the partnership recognises that the DCP has been equitable in its design and implementation. This has allowed DAC country researchers to flourish and deliver their own work in collaboration with those from northern countries. And DAC researchers have all got jobs where they can use their skills for many years to come. New partnerships amongst the same players are already happening and more will come.

Decision makers have improved awareness of the linkage between investment and sustainable development in the corridor context. This has been evidenced in both Kenya and Tanzania where key stakeholders (railways and roads authorities, and environment bodies) and Tanzania (agricultural development, water management authorities, and EIA / SEA bodies) have recognised the need to work together to deliver better outcomes for development corridors.

Decision makers also have improved awareness of incentives to incorporate climate change considerations into decision-making in the corridor context. This is particularly the case around climate changed induced flooding and potential impacts on infrastructure and agricultural investments.

Interdisciplinary research and research expertise reaching and influencing decision making processes. DCP has made major efforts to disseminate its broad research findings to different stakeholders in accessible formats. Recent dissemination events suggest there have been significant shifts in interest for this information and there are promised improvements in Kenya and Tanzania amongst corridor development authorities. There have also been significant lessons learned in China among key agencies and think tanks that advise government.

Changing discourse at national/ international partner/agency level. This has been seen throughout dissemination meetings held in Kenya, Tanzania and China with increased interest in DCP findings and products. As our synthetic products are launched (for example the DCP Resources Hub and E-learning course), we will use the DCP network to continue to influence discourse and decisions around corridor sustainability.
Exploitation Route DCP outcomes and research and capacity building initiatives provide routes to better decision-making for more sustainable development corridors. Bridging the gap between science-policy and action, these resources will enable policymakers, NGOs, governmental officials, researchers and all corridor practitioners to understand corridor case studies from Kenya and Tanzania. There are also various spin off projects already underway through post docs in Europe, NGOs in Africa, Think tanks in China, UNEP agencies via UNEP-WCMC, promotion of synthesis outputs to professional bodies and agencies (e.g. African Development Bank, EIA professional societies). We are also fundraising for continued work with the DCP partnership around sustainable corridors and infrastructure.

Description Beyond academic and research achievements, DCP impacts are focused around improving planning, implementation and monitoring of development corridors in order to inform corridors that are more sustainable, climate resilient, nature positive and inclusive. This is being achieved through dissemination and capacity building to corridor actors, including corridor financiers, government agencies, capacity building initiatives, and civil society, supported by DCP resources and case studies around (1) impact assessments, (2) protection of biodiversity and reduction of impacts, (3) climate change resilience and adaptation strategies, (4) water resource management and (5) avoiding, mitigating negative social impacts and local communities' rights. Much of the project focus in 2021 and 2022 has been on strengthening the accessibility and visibility of available tools and resources produced by the partnership. These tools will be maintained online by UNEP-WCMC for years into the future and will be further developed within the framework of our 2022-2025 strategy. As such the DCP work has provided us with a springboard to develop capacity in a key area that we will develop further with UN, government and business partners in the coming years - building upon and promoting the work done under the first phase of the DCP funding. The capacity built within the DCP network is another key area of impact- among researchers and NGO staff at all levels. Training resources made publicly available will leave a platform for continued capacity building beyond the end of the grant. The global network of DCP members and stakeholders that has been assembled is another major impact. The DCP synthetic products will leave a legacy of resources for this network to draw on when planning future corridor developments. The DCP team does not plan to stop working on development corridor issues. We are actively seeking ways to continue the work through embedding the work within ongoing programmes of work at UNEP, WWF and other partners. And through active fundraising to continue and develop the most impactful areas of the projects work. Our International Advisory Board and Executive Committee will continue to function and will swap to searching for further resources for a second phase of the DCP concept in Africa, or elsewhere in the world.

Impact Mobile-based data collection: The DCP Kenya team organised and facilitated a three-day training course on the use of mobile phones to collect different data types including household survey data and ecological monitoring data. Mobile data collection improves the efficiency, accuracy and consistency of data collection. The training focused mainly on the use of Open Data Kits (ODK) (a modular and simple to use a framework that supports structured questionnaire design, data collection, real-time data transfer, and database management). The team has successfully utilised the skills gained to develop and undertake a large-scale household survey in selected sites along the SGR and LAPSSET corridors. In addition, the team has expanded the training by delivering training to other research and project staff at ACC. We have also trained the local enumerators in the various sites we have visited for data collection (Isiolo, Suswa, Nairobi, Kibwezi, Voi and Mombasa) on the use of ODK.

Title A Q-Methodology approach to imagining development futures 
Description Used a Q-methodology approach with the conceptual framing of imaginaries to identify the 3 distinct imaginaries of SDG futures across East Africa, and imagine SDG synergies, trade-offs and futures. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2022 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact We advance a novel approach to integrated assessment of the ways in which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are likely to manifest and interact within a given development context, using Q-Methodology and the conceptual framing of imaginaries. We apply this to development corridors and identify three qualitatively distinct imaginaries of SDG futures that exist among stakeholders across five development corridors in East Africa. The method is flexible and could be applied to enable rapid assessment of SDG trajectories within other development contexts.

Impact Enhanced understanding on the perceptions of the general public on the impacts of development corridors on water resources, land use and biodiversity; their involvement in decision making process and environmental impact assessments in the Development corridors (SGR & LAPSET) 
 
Title Kesho 
Description KESHO is a scenario framework named from the Swahili word for "tomorrow" or "later". Scenario frameworks are used in planning future adaptation strategies; increasingly needed under a future characterised by changing demographic, environment and development pathways. Scenario tools offer the opportunity to consider multiple dimensions (e.g. socio-economic and environmental), to explore multiple alternatives and account for uncertainty around the future events and the impact of different future pathways. To address challenges of social-ecological systems in face of global to local pressures, we developed a participatory framework to model land use and land cover change (LULCC) scenarios at local, regional and national scales. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure

Title Development corridors in Africa 
Description The aim is to create a spatial and tabular database of development corridors in Africa (DCDB) and 170 records have been collected and included in the database to date. The DCDB will be composed of two linked datasets: a tabular dataset and a spatial dataset. The tabular dataset will include a series of quantitative and qualitative descriptors about development corridors. For those corridors for which there is spatial data, these data will be compiled into a spatial dataset. Both datasets will be linked through a numerical unique identifier per corridor. While the scope of this work is Africa only, other corridor datasets will also be collected and classified if encountered. It is expected that this database could form the basis of a global corridors database in the future.

The paper not only informs the sustainable water management practices and policy formulations in Ewaso Nyiro North basin but also provides evidence for flash flood risk management in the basin. The study outcomes also inform the development corridor projects' planning and resource management in the basin. The developments are likely to attract population expansion and therefore increase water demands on the already water-scarce basin. The study outcomes will therefore inform appropriate decision making and adaptation options with regard to sustainable water resource management in the basin
