CLIMATE CHANGE AND LAND DEGRADATION: BUILDING GRASSROOTS CAPACITY FOR APPROPRIATE RESPONSES in Anambra state – Dunukofia, Oyi and Anambra east LGAs
CLIMATE CHANGE AND LAND DEGRADATION: BUILDING GRASSROOTS CAPACITY FOR APPROPRIATE RESPONSES in Anambra state – Dunukofia, Oyi and Anambra east LGAs
The project seeks to reduce the impact of Climate Change and land degradation to improve sustainability of life at the grassroots in three local government areas of Anambra State. In Dunukofia, almost every land is under pressure for residential accommodation or business activity which also results to collapse of some of the hills where the community streams are located. In the local government areas proposed, there are critical environmental problems bothering largely on gully erosion, deforestation and rising temperatures and rainfall with rising flooding. In Dunukofia and Oyi local governments, all the six communities have developing sites or active sites.
Project activities include advocacy to mobilise the community people, Ministries of Agriculture and Environment on erosion control and enforcement, popularization of the measures and training sessions, practical activities in planting of tree and grasses, community campaigns to stop bush burning, training on solar technology to provide local knowledge on maintenance of solar facilities. Groups involved the community (men, youth and women).
