Project Summary:
Supporting male and female farmers to transition from illegal agricultural practices within protected area forest wetlands that are unsustainable and harmful to ecosystems and species (notably elephant and chimpanzee), and that trigger human-elephant conflict, through the use of improved and labour-saving techniques, crops and storage solutions in co-managed transition zones. The relocation and improvement of agricultural practices reduces encroachment and degradation of forest habitats and ecosystems, benefiting elephants, forest resources and biodiversity, while improving the wellbeing of targeted farmers.
