Agro-Forestry and Eco-Tourism in support of Natural Resource Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods in Vieux-Fort North Communities including those of Belle Vue, Fond Joyeux and Grace.
This project has two components: (i) A River Stabilization Component; and (ii) A Livelihoods Component. The project objectives are as follows: (i) To reforest 4.6 km of the Lower Grace / La Retraite River banks upstream of the WASCO Beausejour Water Treatment Plant in year 1 of the project cycle; and (ii) To assess the feasibility of establishment an ecotourism venture in Joyeux and based on the outcome of the assessment, the creation of an eco-tourism enterprise centred around the Fond Joyeux Waterfalls located in the Fond Joyeux community by year 2 of the project cycle. The hope is that this project will bring about significant capacity building in that relatively poor community.
