Project Summary:
Working with nine villages on the degraded Bamboutos mountain, we will commence re-establishment of key biodiversity habitat and catchment areas through community-led forest restoration. Increasing tree cover on farms through agroforestry and the development of tree-based value chains will improve food security and income for poor mountain communities, leading to improved livelihoods, as well as biodiversity. We will engage local, regional and national stakeholders in participatory planning to agree on a process for the long term conservation of the ecosystem. Framework established for land use planning and sustainable management of Bamboutos ecosystem, through stakeholder engagement and tangible progress towards reforestation, sustainable farming, food security and livelihoods.
