The project will help to restore fallen walls for 3 families, reconstruct and repair 30 improved cookstoves, and share necessities for 100 families who have been affected by torrential rains and cyclone Yaku this year.
The beneficiaries from our La Libertad Dry Forest Project have been affected by torrential rains from Cyclone Yaku causing landslides, and floods this year. Homes have been damaged, improved cookstoves destroyed, and rice crops lost, particularly in the towns of Jatanca and Santa Maria.
Relief funds will help to restore fallen walls in the homes of 3 families, rebuild 30 improved cookstoves, and share necessities for 100 families in Jatanca and Santa Maria.
In the long-term, the project will restore up to 12 hectares of degraded land by 2024, and influence and protect over 1,350 hectares of local dry forest landscapes, reducing threats to endangered species and communities vulnerable to climate events. Additionally, at least 6 low-income, farming communities will possess the capacity to conserve dry forests and realise sustainable economic activities that enhance their income, with the ability to share their knowledge and skills with others.
