Enhancing the skills and participation of women to effectively conserve, restore and utilize the natural resources Bulenga Traditional area in Wa East District.
The project enhancing the skills and participation of women to effectively conserve, restore and utilize the natural resources Bulenga Traditional area in Wa East District seeks to provide women farmers with basic skills to enhance climate smart agriculture within the traditional area. Climate smart agriculture is not being viewed in isolation but part of the equation; 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 emissions.
