N° projet  : GHA/SGP/OP5/CORE/BD/12/24/011

Durée : Start Date : 2/2012 End Date : 5/2013

Contexte
Indiscriminate bush burning, uncontrolled hunting and unsustainable charcoal production are the main driving force to biodiversity loss and Land degradation in the CREMA manifested by soil erosion, water scarcity, reduced agricultural productivity and decreased nutritional value of food crops. Biodiversity loss and land degradation coupled with long drought are causing severe hardship for many people who directly depend upon the natural resources for survival. Women and children, in particular, bear the greatest burden in times of drought. Women are responsible for hauling water and firewood for the household, and desertification can add hours to labour on an already fully charged workday.

Objectifs
The main objective of this project is to support the implementation of the CREMA Management Plan for the conservation and sustainable utilization of threatened native species, sustainable land management, livelihood enterprise development, improved market and trading in traditional health products.
The specific objectives of the project are :
1. To develop and sustain the capacities of twelve rural communities to identify innovative strategies, procedures and opportunities to invest in biodiversity conservation and sustainable land management through market access and trade to enhance sustainable land management.
2. To assist twelve rural communities to restore degraded lands through integrated water and soil management, community based forest woodlot/agro-forestry, wildfires management, natural regeneration establishment and enrichment planting.
3. To support sustainable livelihood enterprise development as compensation for the provision of ecosystem goods and services through the processing natural resources to enhance sustainable land management
