Présentation
Zimbabwe has more than 80% of its population dependent on rain-fed subsistence agriculture. Communities rely on generating their livelihoods from small-scale agriculture. At present, Zimbabwe is experiencing extreme weather events characterized by recurrent floods and droughts. Consequently, efforts to enhance sustainable economic growth and improved rural livelihoods have been at risk in the past 10 years, (ZIMVACC, Report 2016). Given this background, Community Initiatives for Sustainable Development and Empowerment (CISDE) is proposing to engage in an integrated programme that addresses protection of the catchment and enhancement of food security in Jinga village, Chakohwa Ward 3 under Chimanimani district. CISDE is requesting US$ 50,000 from the GEF SGP of which CISDE will co-finance US$ 21,700 and the Jinga community will contribute US$ 3,000. The $3.000.00 will be contributed by community members through in-kind provision of labor, land clearance, labour for fencing, tillage, building materials such as bricks, sand and quarry and use of their tools for the various project activities. Jinga village catchment area name is Chaseyama and is in the Western part of the Chimanimani District, between Murare River to the North and Chiire stream to the South of Jinga village. The Western end of Jinga village in Ward 3 is marked by Odzi River, while the Eastern end of Jinga village in Ward 3 is marked by the Chiramba range of mountains Map of the area attached - Annex 2. It is approximately 80 km along the Mutare – Birchenough highway. The highway in some way gives opportunity to the local households who can market and sell their products such as fruits, crafts, livestock, livestock products and honey to travelers. There are approximately 433 households and about 6% of the households are child headed families, then 31% are female headed households and 63% are male headed households. On average, the household size has six members per family.
