Our work on climate change is focus on both Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation response approaches.

Through the climate change mitigation approach, we target the causes of climate change. Our activities are centered around the REDD+ mechanism, targeting emission reduction and engaging with different partners. We focus on the following activities;

  • Sensitization of local communities on the adverse effects of climate change
  • Development and implementation of reforestation projects primarily in the Sahelian regions to reduce land degradation 
  • Implementation 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 activities that 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.
