Enhance options for climate resilience for rural livelihoods through investment in an integrated range of activities related to agricultural production, post-production value addition and market analysis and information and knowledge transfer, including: climate-resilient irrigation and road design, crop diversification and creation of biodiversity conservation oriented livelihoods and jobs.
Institute a system to monitor the biological conditions and functionality of the BCs and adjoining PAs with attention to key ecosystems and target species through GIS, high resolution habitat mapping and camera trapping among other things and training of staff including women staff in the application of the system.
While FMUs have been managed relatively well for many years, the project will add value through integration of climate resilience, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity conservation functions and values of FMUs and LFMPs in the planning and monitoring system.
Strengthen community livelihoods and enhance sources of income for vulnerable people in the demonstration landscapes through post-production value-addition, diversification, additional and innovative income generating opportunities and climate risk transfer schemes through insurance of vulnerable assets.
The project will contribute directly towards three SDGs that have been prioritized by the RGoB: 1: No poverty (end poverty in all its forms everywhere) 13: Climate Action (Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts) 15: Life on land (Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss). In addition, the project will contribute towards SDG 2 (End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture) SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) and SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) .
