Reclamation of oil spill degraded farm lands through sustainable Agro-forestry in Etekuru-Egbema, Abacheke-Egbema and Ugada-Egbema, Ohaji Egbema LGA Imo State
The project seeks to reclaim degraded farm lands and reduce deforestation; caused by oil spills, by building local capacity to improve oil spill clean-up exercise and sustainable land management/agro-forestry. The intervention is part of a community outreach programme to empower Nigerian Youths (men and women) at the community grass root level to proactively participate in environmental remediation for sustainable development and poverty alleviation. Some of the project activities include advocacy and community dialogue; tree planting exercises and establishment of community nursery and orchards; construction of stone wall and drainages; provision of refuse dump site; training in waste management and provision of hand pump borehole.
It is expected at the end of the project, there would be increased public awareness and community level capacity to recover crude oil; sustainable agricultural practices to mitigate land degradation and climate change and restore degraded farm lands; improved sustainable community forest management
