Summary

The main objective pursued is to combat the decline of soil fertility through the promotion of the restoration of the lost forest landscape through the involvement of women, because it is undoubtedly proven that rural women are the first users of forests. and land and if they are trained in agroforestry they can contribute effectively to the restoration of lost forest landscapes in order to fight against land degradation.

Challenge

The rapid loss of forests caused by intense agricultural activities (shifting cultivation, coal production and bushfire practices) has led to a loss of forest cover in the area, the degradation of a sharp decline in soil fertility and the rarity of rainfall. The CTIDD has identified with the communities the corrective measures to be implemented with a view to leading a common front in the efforts to be made to support.

Solution

Restoration of lost forest landscape and land fertility by planting fast-growing trees in the 50 hectares of community fields to create a forest gallery through the supervision of women in sustainable agriculture (agroforestry). Strengthen the commitments of women farmers in the field of sustainable agriculture, fight against land and forest degradation and climate change.

Long-Term Impact

50 hectares of degraded land on which sustainable land and forest management practices are conducted using sustainable agriculture practices; 50 hectares of degraded lands are restored and rehabilitated; 50 women demonstrating sustainable land and forest management practices.
