Utilization of Nypa Palm As A Climate Change Adaptation Strategy in Upenekang, Ibeno Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State
The objectives of this project are to cultivate the habit for utilizing nypa palm through the use of techniques required to extract useful resources such as sugar, ethanol, mats, etc. The degradation of the environment through oil exploration and unavailability of cooking fuel have resulted in exploitation of the mangroves by the community for firewood, even to the point of “desecrating” the wild life sanctuary in the area. Nypa palm is an invasive plant which has increased in multiplication and the indigenes do not know its use.

Project activities involve; Pay advocacy visit to Upenekang, Hold meeting with UYA, village head of Upenekang and chiefs, Identify and select 50 youths of UYA, Hold TTT workshop planning meeting of resource persons, Hold 5 days practical demonstration of use of nypa palm Collection of nypa sap and leaves from forest Production of nypa palm, Formation of community based association for nypa utilization, Sensitization workshop for another 50 persons, 1 day rally for support of utilization, Monitoring and evaluation, Report writing.
