"Capacity enhancement for civil society groups to address environmental degradation in Lower Badibou North District"
This project aims to address environmental degradation in Lower Baddibou Distrct of the North Bank Region by building the capacity of CSOs in environmental management. The region is adversely affected by deforestation and land degradation which results in declining agricultural productivity. The effect of this on the population is food insecurity, raising poverty levels among households leading to urban migration by the youthful population.

The specific objectives of the project include: (1). To build the capacity of 1, 500 people from the 5 project communities on environmental management for environmental restoration and livelihood enhancement.
(2) To promote the use of technologies that would contribute to reversing environmental degradation such as Energy saving stoves, tree planting in degraded landscapes.
(3) Build capacities in agroforestry especially on Alley farming to combat land degradation and address the issue of livestock feed and fuel wood crisis.
