Involving Schools and Communities on Reforestation to achieve and strengthen sustainable farming and climate change mitigation project
The project aims to strengthen sustainable farming and climate change adaptation systems through specific approved climate smart agricultural practices from previous interventions, additionally, capacity development for beneficiary communities shall be a component of the implementation.
