Raising awareness and adapting agriculture to changing climatic conditions.
Within the framework of training courses, 300 smallholder families are to be sensitised with regard to environment and sustainable agriculture. Through the sensitisation measures in the form of practice-oriented workshops, water resources and biodiversity are protected. In addition, newly acquired knowledge will make agricultural production more profitable in the long term.
Sensitisation of the population
Awareness-raising courses on water and forest conservation are being conducted in six village communities. In addition, local authorities are also being trained on environmental protection and water resource issues. The training courses and workshops aim to raise awareness on environmental and water resource protection.
Environmentally friendly agriculture in the form of adapting production to climatic changes is to be taught in practice through established demonstration plots. The project will also reforest a total of 450 ha of forest in the form of six community tree nurseries.
