Project Summary:
This project will introduce mushroom and quail egg production livelihoods to three Community Managed Savings and Credit Associations (CoMSCA), in two communities negatively impacted by COVID-19. Both are associated with Freshwater Sanctuaries (FS) established in our current Darwin-funded project (24-016) and have suffered drastically from reduced tourism and service industries. The project endeavours to understand COVID-19 impacts on beneficiaries’ behaviour pre- and post-intervention, using established socio-economic and biological data to determine the effects on both community well-being and FS biodiversity.
