Promoting Participatory Community-Based REDD Plus in Coastal Communities of Eserebom and Anantigha in Calabar South LGA Of Cross River State, Nigeria.
The overall objective of the proposed project is to reduce poverty and enhance rural livelihoods through sustainable income generation for mangrove communities and improved management of mangrove forest resources in Anantigha and Esierebum communities in Calabar South Local Government Area in Cross River State. This objective will be achieved by tackling issues such as sustainable livelihoods, mangrove regeneration and forest management planning, innovative and efficient use of mangrove forest resources for fish smoking, and community level capacity building to enable individual and collective resilience to respond to climate change. The direct target of this project will be 100 youth and both men and women from fishing households in these 2 communities who rely on fishing and mangrove products for survival. Capacity of 250 men and 250 women from both communities will be built and they will be mobilized to participate in the production of forest management plans for consideration by the community and support information sharing and policy advocacy to ensure a coherent and consistent legal framework is in place at state level with regard to the use and protection of mangrove forests, their resources, and the people who rely on them for survival.
