Target Groups

This project makes a significant contribution to the implementation of The Bahamas commitments to the three Rio Conventions, as expressed in the country’s UNCCD National Action Plan, the NBSAP, and the INDC and National Communications to the UNFCCC. The UNCCD NAP aims to address the main causes of land degradation and to combat drought through the promotion of alternative livelihoods, sustainable agricultural practices, the development and efficient use of energy, and the strengthening of capacities for assessment and observation. This project will impact productive Bahamian agricultural landscapes using sound ILM approaches. Primary objectives are to enhance climate-resilient food production using CSA; and achieve LDN by the judicial implementation of SLM Approaches and Technologies (AT). The activities being implemented will contribute to expanded livelihood opportunities through uptake of gender-sensitive business investment plans and market access mechanisms, giving rise to business development services and capacity building to facilitate enhanced production of agricultural and other value-added products from restored landscapes. It will contribute to the desired impacts of improved and sustainable crop yields and healthy, resilient and productive ecosystems toward improved livelihoods and well-being and expanded global environmental benefits.
