Mauritania is facing multiple and interlinked challenges: rising insecurity, demographic growth including through the new arrivals of refugees, and migrants which are elevating demand of natural resource. Additional concerns include an environment threatened by land degradation and recurrent droughts which impact the resilience of all the populations in Hodh Chargui (HEC). In addition, due to a lack of access to basic services and economic opportunities, a large portion of the population is living in poverty. All of the aforementioned obstacles have contributed to significantly heightened pressure on agricultural production systems and natural resources. This then impacts the livelihood of refugees, migrants and host communities in HEC. Given the current challenges and local needs, the proposed project aims to further enhance the climate resilience of refugee, migrant, and migration-prone communities by providing sustainable solutions and responses to reinforce the local livelihood. This will enhance the capacities of communities to foster social cohesion and peaceful coexistence among refugees, migrants, and host communities.
