A planning grant of US$3,000 is awarded to assist in developing the full proposal for the project titled ‘A Sustainable Land Management project to betters people’s livelihood through providing a food source and improved housing design for those living in the Wom1 & 2 area and adjacent villages of the Sepik River.’ The project will fit under the focal area of Climate Change Adaptation and Land Degradation through establishing floating gardens, an innovative approach that would look at improving food security for the communities who are constantly being affected by the impact of flood along the Sepik River.
