Target Groups

First, the project will generate socio-economic benefits by maintaining and enhancing the resource base (rangelands, forests) on which the local communities in the three target provinces rely for their livelihoods.Second, the project will support farmers and herders (women and men), including Kuchi herders, in the target districts to generate income from improved value chains, such as, for example, for pine nuts, medicinal plants or dairy products. It will also generate socio-economic benefits for women through the implementation of small-scale greenhouses (for sapling and fruit/vegetable production). Additionally, it will help herders to strengthen the health of their livestock through improved access to veterinary services and fodder. The project seeks to achieve additional income (or other socio-economic benefits as perceived by the beneficiaries) from enhanced value chains for at least 450 households.Finally, through these interventions, the project also works towards achieving full and productive employment and decent work in rural areas, including women and men.
