Présentation
The community of Mapoka village in North East Botswana, through its Bokamano Conservation Trust, requests BWP365, 000.00 from the Global Environment Facility/Small Grants Program for the implementation of the Musantuthu Environmental Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods Project.
It is anticipated that the project will embark on grassroots environmental education of its members as a premise to their full participation in the inherent activities. The project will also address some pressing environmental issues such as land degradation and loss of biodiversity. The project will feature the establishment of a public park, the Musantuthu Park, which will enhance the public environmental education and provide a venue for relaxation and cultural preservation. Finally the project will include a number of income generating activities aimed at creating sustainable livelihoods for members of the community.
The Musantuthu Environmental Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods Project will bring together a number of stakeholders including the Village Development Committee, the North East Technical Advisory Committee, academic institutions and NGOs based in the region.
