Community Based Climate Change Mitigation Project in Bumaji Clan, Boki LGA, Cross River State.
Community Based Climate Change Mitigation Project in Bumaji Clan, Boki LGA, Cross River State.
This project is to address identified prioritized needs in 5 communities – Bambariku with population of 3,600, Bakie (2,100), Bakuriko (1,755), Oguefor (4,115) and Ochakwai (4,450) in this Clan with a total population of 16,020. The targeted communities are farmers and forest gatherers and situate on hilly areas contiguous with Obudu Mountains. Deforestation and degradation in these fragile forest ecosystem have increased emission of greenhouse gases (carbon) into the atmosphere, provoked climate change and erosion, loss of soil fertility, increased food insecurity; destruction of animals’ habitats, loss of biodiversity, polluted waters due to sedimentation and siltation of streams affecting immediate and downstream communities, malnutrition, increased poverty, mortality, poor social status and low community development. The project will reverse these trends through awareness education of 10,550 on climate change, causes, effects and mitigation; training on agro-forestry; raising of 60,000 economic and tropical trees (cocoa, pear, avocado, kolanut, opepe, mimusop, black and white afara) nurseries; regeneration of deforested area; training on alternative livelihoods and empowerment in bee keeping and goat farming, training on/and construction of 500 efficient energy wood cookstoves by the trained women and girls. These activities will be carried out participatory with targeted communities and will contribute to achievement of the project’s goal: “critically stabilize climate change and promote sustainable development”.
