General

The project¿s overall objective is to improve the living conditions and climate resilience of rural populations in Burundi¿s central plateau through an integrated land management approach involving the optimal use of natural resources tailored to growing population pressure. The development objective is the sustainable growth of agricultural productivity and production and the diversification of economic opportunities in rural areas. This will be achieved by: (i) strengthening of the capacities and means of production of small-scale farmers;(ii) the adoption of climate-resilient production systems by small-scale farmers;(iii) optimal participatory management of natural resources in the hills; (iv) support for grassroots community organizations, especially cooperatives, through the value-enhancement and marketing of their products; (v) the promotion of economic activities to boost the income of small-scale farmers.
