Promoting Good Environmental Practices on Forest conservation and climate change adaptation in Creek Town Beech Community of Odukpani LGA.
Promoting Good Environmental Practices on Forest conservation and climate change adaptation in Creek Town Beech Community of Odukpani LGA.
The proposed project by PPA is to be implemented in Creek Town beech community where about 80% of the economically active population forms the agrarian labor force. The conservative poverty line of N3, 290/ person/ month, shows that over 70% of the people live in poverty. This project specifically focuses on 100 women, 50 youths including Physically Challenged Population, who are often the most disadvantaged groups within rural communities. The proposed project beneficiaries are primarily reliant upon wood logging and fishing as major source of livelihood as well as small scale farming. With logging and clearing of farmland, most forests are being encroached and thus affecting climate change. Furthermore, the traditional methods of harvesting wild Afang are unsustainable. The project objectives among others are to establish one afang (gnetum africanum) and one snail farm at Creek Town Beech community within 18 months as a Sustainable Livelihoods option which is in line with the CBR+ Country Plan.
