Through its Nature Based Community Enterprises (NBCEs) Programme, ARCOS Network partners with community groups in the Albertine Rift region to enhance adaptation to climate change and promote environmental restoration and community development, as well as to build community exchange networks through which partner communities exchange bio-culture knowledge and experience.
It is in this framework that every year since 2016, ARCOS Network facilitates Community-to-Community Exchange. The first phase was held in Kapchorwa, Mbale, and Bududa Districts in Eastern Uganda on the slopes of Mt. Elgon from 29th to 31st August 2016 and the second phase of the Regional Community-to-Community Exchange was held from 27th to 30th November 2017 in selected sites of Bugesera and Kirehe Districts in Rwanda and it targeted 30 NBCEs, members of ARCOS’ community network, from Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.
The main objective of this Community-to-Community Exchange was to enable participants to exchange information and knowledge on best agricultural practices, biodiversity conservation, sustainable energy solutions, value addition as well as cultural exchange.
