The project will strengthen the capacities of the local populations of the Kara and Savanes regions on land restoration practices and the establishment of anti-erosion infrastructure, which will contribute to land restoration and increase the yield of agricultural production. Likewise, the project will develop nature-based alternative livelihoods such as beekeeping, off-season crops, market gardening as well as the improvement of animal husbandry and will contribute to the diversification of the sources of income of the populations of the project area. It will support local populations in the processing of their agricultural and non-timber forest products. 2. The above support will lead to an improvement in the income of the populations, with a reduction in poverty. The diversification of income sources as well as the improvement of yields will reduce the pressure on arable land and thus reduce conflicts related to access to agricultural land. Increased vegetation cover will also help reduce flooding as well as loss of human life, loss of homes, loss of crops and crops. This situation will improve the living conditions of the populations of the Kara and Savanes regions. 3. Finally, support to groups and / or cooperatives of women and young people will increase these groups’ incomes as well as the standard of living of households, with a significant positive impact on education.
