Sustainable forestry, agroforestry and biomass energy management for climate resilience in Gatsibo District.
Gatsibo District has undergone intensive deforestation in the last decades that led to scarcity of wood fuels which is the sole source of energy. The project is aimed at rehabilitating 500 ha of degraded forests; creating 3,000 ha woodlots for environmental protection, agroforestry on 15,000 ha for soil fertility and promoting improved cook-stoves in order to reduce pressure on forest resources. This project will benefit 19,317 poorest households which represents 17% of the total population.
Output 1: Forest plantations in Gatsibo district rehabilitated
Output 2: Woodlots for environment protection established
Output 3: Agroforestry systems promoted and adopted by farmers
Output 4: Increased access and use of improved cook-stoves
