Target Groups

The project will generate socio-economic benefits for the participating farmers and the 365 (175 female and 190 male) direct beneficiaries of the project. It is expected that the introduction of improved agroecological management practices for crop and horticulture production as well as for pasture management will increase productivity by around 25% leading to increased incomes for farm households, while enhancing soil organic carbon levels and reducing soil erosion and other forms of land degradation on productive land. The project is following the ILO guidelines on full and productive employment and decent work in rural areas, and will especially target women with gender response knowledge products. The project will also ensure that the rural network for agroecology that it will be establish is inclusive and reaches all relevant stakeholders, men as well as women, and other disadvantaged groups in rural areas in Bolu province, so that it can support the scaling up of project experiences and agroecological management practices in an inclusive and equitable manner that generates socio-economic benefits.
