Climate-smart farming and livelihood enterprises development to minimize Greenhouse gas by Women farmers in Dupare and Gilan within the Bulenga Traditional Area of the Black Volta Catchment Area.
Climate-smart farming and livelihood enterprises development to minimize Greenhouse gas by Women farmers in Dupare and Gilan within the Bulenga Traditional Area of the Black Volta Catchment Area.
The project will seek to provide women farmers with basic skills to enhance climate smart agriculture within the traditional area. The climate smart agriculture is not being viewed in isolation but an integral part of a systemic and inclusive agenda to transform farming in rural communities. It will not be limited to food security alone, but also direct measures are taken to counter detrimental climate effects. Climate smart agriculture agricultural practice that reduces exposure, sensitivity or vulnerability to climate variability or change (for example, water harvesting, terracing, mulching, drought-tolerant crops, index insurances, village savings) is also climate-smart because they enhance farmers? ability to cope with weather extremes. Likewise, agricultural practices that sequester carbon from the atmosphere like agroforestry, and minimum tillage will be introduced to reduce agricultural emission.

Project Characteristics and Results
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
100 charcoal producers supported to invest in kiln carbonization of wood to minimize waste, increase recovery, reduce drudgery in charcoal production and utilize the residue as biochar to improve soil fertility and enhance nutrient absorption by plants
Gender Focus
DIWP believes in a pluralism that values the diversity among both women and men, and as such Gender Mainstreaming would be considered during the project design at all areas and levels. We will adhere to the principles of GEF guidelines which enhances female participation in all aspect of socio-economic development. DIWP project recognizes women and women-led groups as most vulnerable in keeping with community development obligations and has identified that, women and women-led groups are less likely to bridge the gap between economic development and environmental conservation. And as such, the project will adopt a gender sensitive approach where conscious efforts will be made to identify the role of women to ensure larger participation of women in the project. The project will ensure that at least 50% of women are selected to be part of the project.
