Empowering Women and Youth in Addressing the effect of Emission and Land Degradation in Mararaban Burum Community, Apo Districts, FCT Abuja
Our local communities of a population of about 5,000 are contributing to the issue of climate change, land degradation and the loss of biodiversity through their day to day activities. They are majorly farmers and also greatly depend on forest for fuel wood, fruits, medicine and other social economic needs. Need assessment was conducted by our NGO in 2012 in which representatives of the communities identified local evidence of climate change, land degradation and loss of biodiversity as follows: irregular rainfall pattern; increasing temperature within and outside the houses; outbreak of pest on farm lands; dwindling number and lack of trees for shade; loss of soil fertility; and increasing incidences of flooding. The proposed project is designed to address these challenges are construction of 50 energy saving stoves to reduce dependence of fuelwood; training of about 100 women and youths in simple organic farming methods such as mulching, composting; planting of 2,000 economic trees for regeneration and also restore aesthetics, and training of about 100 women and youths in alternative income generating activities such as soap making, sustainable gathering of non-timber forest products. There will also production of simple and easy to understand IEC materials to serve as reference for community and others
