Target Groups

The project promotes full and productive employment and decent work in rural areas, aiming at the progressive realization of their right to Decent Rural Employment[1]. Strengthening of key value-chains and introduction of target SLM measures will lead to improved income generation opportunities and more diversified livelihoods for around 12,500 people (50% women) in the target Governates and landscapes. Additional socio-economic benefits include the following and will be calculated during initial stages of project implementation: · Number of land managers with access to advisory or extension services (total # per administrative district per region)· Increased investments in SLM· Increased awareness of LDN concepts, LD impacts and LDN principles· Increased livelihood and economic resilience through improved market access by smallholder to climate resilient value chains · Increased social resilience and human well-being (Gender equality, access to information and finance) of 12,500 beneficiaries (Women 6,250; Men 6,250)· Improved access to finance for small-holder farmers· Improved food security through increased productivity and delivery of ecosystem services (project contribution defined, but not monitored) [1] Specific guidance on how FAO can promote the Four Pillars of Decent Work in rural areas is provided in the Quick reference for addressing decent rural employment (as well as in the full corresponding Guidance document).
