Summary

The project aims at building capacities of communities to sustain water supply access in 5 Districts in Sierra Leone. Working from an environmentally sound and climate sensitive approach, it will strengthen wider knowledge as well as involvement in addressing impacts of climate change while ensuring sustained access safe water supply. There will further be targeted reforestation activities to protect water catchments to prevent them from drying up and contamination backed by hand-on trainings.

Challenge

Water infrastructure in the target districts is groaning under the weight of disparity between urban and rural accessibility and climate change. Predominantly, most of the local communities hugely rely on farming, fuel wood and others for a living. While many are into various activities and their desires to explore alternative means, they lack the right set of capacity and resources to implement sound environmentally friendly actions that will support livelihoods and water supply.

Solution

This project provides local communities with the skills set and resources to practice sustainable water management. Not alone will it help in increasing health, it will further mitigate climate change effects on water catchments. Targeted trainings will be carried out as well as the intensification of tree planting as a measure of solid conservation practice. An important part of this project is that the planting of fruit trees will be embarked on as means of averting deforestation and hazards.

Long-Term Impact

The project will impact at least 12,000 people from across two 4 districts, ensuring that residents have sustained access to safe water supply, which is improving lives and health of those benefiting from them. Trees will provide nutritional values while reducing firewood cutting and scaling up livelihood diversification. The water catchments and surrounding environments will be protected, with increased rainfall and security of surface as well as underground water sources.
