Project Characteristics and Results
Gender Focus
Both men and women need are taken care of in the project design. Since the traditional medicine production have active participation of women, the interests of women are well taken care as they stand to benefit from every aspect of the project. Again, preventing bushfires through fire belt will improve the ecosystem and plant cover which have positive environmental impact and to a large extent rainfall pattern. Moreover, gender equality and equity, and social inclusion is a priority area of the project. Central to achieving this, the project would ensure equal representation of both men and women as beneficiaries. Special livelihood interventions such as bee farming, poultry farming, tree nursery establishment and orchard farming under the project would target and economically empower women and vulnerable groups (disabled, widows) whilst strengthening their adaptive capacity to climate change. Women, the disabled and any other vulnerable groups would be encouraged to partake in all project activities (meetings, reviews, durbars, consultations, and sensitization) The PMT would constitute at least one female who would automatically be the assistant team leader if she is not voted for as team leader.
