Challenge

The community of Malacatoya is located at the top of Malacatoya's river sub-basin. This river is the main water source for human consumption and productive activities of Malacatoya and neighboring communities. Agricultural producers of Malacatoya lack environmental awareness and they implement unsustainable practices such as: crops grown on slopes, use of agrochemicals, agricultural burning, intensive farming, and deforestation, which accelerate environmental degradation and water pollution.

Solution

In Community will be established 4 tree nurseries which produce trees to reforest degraded areas of the community. Also will be built 20 improved cookstoves to replace traditional stoves in 20 households that will help reduce the use of firewood and deforestation, and contribute to improving the health of women and girls who constantly are exposed to inhalations smoke. Environmental education activities are implemented to raise awareness and develop an environmental culture.

Long-Term Impact

women and girls from 20 households improve their health by reducing their exposure to smoke or the proper use of improved stoves and firewood consumption is reduced in homes. The establishment of nurseries allows reforest upland areas of the watershed contributing to protect water sources. Families sensitized involved in actions aimed at protecting natural resources.
