[pic]Our work on climate change is focused on both the mitigation and adaptation response approaches.

Climate change mitigation targets the causes of climate change. One approach to achieve a reduction to CC is through the REDD+ mechanism, which indirectly leads to forest and biodiversity conservation. We focus on the following activities;

  • Sensitization programs for local communities on the adverse effects of climate change
  • Develop and implement reforestation projects primarily in the Sahelian regions reduce land degradation 
  • Implement plans to restore and maintain forests that serve as a sink for CO2, a significant greenhouse gas.
  • Implement forest regeneration strategies in forest-dependent communities
  • Implement programs to promote improved or low consumption stoves and the use of alternative fuels to reduce the supply of fuel wood from forest communities.
  • Partnership with government institutions to monitor the activities of commercial logging companies to respect the logging agreements. 

 

  • Adaptation: tackling the consequences of climate change. 
  • Carry out vulnerability studies on savannah, coastal and forest populations to better inform decision-makers
  • Provide training to these populations on socio-economic activities to reduce poverty and increase their resilience to the changing climate
  • Programs to distribute improved seedlings and implement irrigation schemes in drought-affected areas
  • Identify flood risk zones and build dikes to reduce flood disasters
  • Cary out reforestation on landslide risk zones
  • Implement projects to restore and protect coral reefs and coastal forests, which serve as barriers to storm surges.
  • Organize training programs for local farmers on proper farming methods on degraded lands to protect from erosion and landslides.
