Summary

This project supports 100 Ogoni farmers suffering effects of oil polluted lands and rivers through training in alternative livelihoods agriculture on livestock, food crop, and aquaculture production (i.e. poultry, piggery, fishery, snail farming, and mushroom growing) for food support and socio-economic adaptation; and the Centre rehabilitates affected household-farmers in difficulties by transforming their helpless state-of-need to self-supporting status of six-month livelihoods strengthening.

Challenge

Ogonis are agrarian on land mass/coastal vegetation for livelihoods in fishing/farming. But local agriculture has reduced food supply under pressure of oil/gas -crude oil production since 1956, population increase, land grab, degradation, and water/air pollution. Polluted land/rivers make them economically displaced in high poverty, food insecurity/hunger, and unemployment where locals abandon indigenous livelihoods; thus joblessness, malnutrition, rising prices/unhealthy food, and health issues

Solution

Absorbing 100 Ogoni farmers into alternative livelihoods farming in poultry, piggery, fishery, snail farming, and mushroom growing on knowledge/skills for increased food (nutrition) and higher income through adaptive production species, site selection, construction, feeds/feeding, diseases/prevention, harvesting, processing, packaging, marketing, business accounting and bio-safety/wastes transfer added benefits; with self-employment focused farmers' union addressing local fishing/crops failure.

Long-Term Impact

The 100 Ogoni farmers in livelihoods farms will ultimately form a model self-investment enterprising or self-employment orientation for equipping rural people facing hunger and poverty to attain committed levels of food support/nutrition, poverty reduction, low-status reversal, and livelihoods restoration on basis of better diet, job creation, enhanced personal health, and market linkages for national economic development,
