During the visit of the Participatory Governance Assessment (PGA) team for the UN-REDD+ programme to the Boje communities, feedback indicated that, the small-scale farming systems which is a major source of income to the generality of community members is a threatened resource of great value. Unsustainable agricultural systems are practiced by these farmers in their bid to increase farmland area and income (PGA 2014). NCF seeks to adopt the integrated forest management approach to enhance the economy of the three selected in the forest-edge communities in Boje, thereby promoting activities that boost poverty eradication, promotion of improve crop variety, gender empowerment, biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation. This will be achieved through capacity building for Forest Management Committees (FMCs) to review and implement existing land and forest management, building the capacity of women and youth groups on methodologies of planting of improved varieties of cassava, cocoyam, land preparation under eco-agriculture practice, sustainable livelihood enterprises.
