SECOSUD II aims to consolidating the capacities of decision-makers responsible for land planning and management of natural resources, as well as promoting their use in support of the harmonization of land management processes at the national, regional and international level. The final objective is to boost biodiversity conservation and sustainable economic development in the SADC region, consistently with the CBD goals and in synergy with those of UNCCD and UNFCCC.

The project works on strengthening the capacity of the scientific network of the SADC Region, particularly the reference centres for ecosystem-based land planning and management, to fill the gap existing between scientific research and governmental institutions in charge of environmental management. This will help research institutions to fulfil their function of science and knowledge development, and also provide the administrative bodies with adequate instruments and capacities to address the challenges of environmental conservation and sustainable development.

Together with its partners, the project is currently actively operating in Mozambique, South Africa and it is about to start a cooperation in eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) and Zimbabwe.
