What we have achieved
|| What we have achieved
We paid a courtesy visit to the local government and barrio government offices and explained the activities and significance of the project. (* Barrio: the smallest local autonomy unit in the country)
Five WAND researchers conducted socioeconomic and bioenvironmental surveys of 150 households.
Three neighbor tree-planting groups (one per bario) were formed.
Two experts from WAND provided training and technical support for agroforestry conversion through the spread of farmers.
Thirty-five demonstration farms have been identified that promote agroforestry conversion through agricultural extension.
A total of 16,000 trees, vegetables and fruits are planted and grown by participating farmers.
Held an education seminar on climate change adaptation for 330 participating households. The seminar was held at the level of Barrio and Subvario.
The seminar on the sale of agricultural products has not been held yet because it was judged premature in view of production conditions.
Four seminars on strengthening village organizations were held for 240 households participating in the project.
