Coastal Sustainable Landscapes project (CSLP) funded by USAID
As a part of ongoing conservation
efforts along the coasts of Ghana, TRACTOR in partnership with
CSLP is implementing a climate change driven project which uses
multidisciplinary approaches to managing climate change effect
in the six coastal districts namely: Jomoro, Ellembele, Nzema
East, Ahanta West, Sekondi-Takoradi and Shama of the Western
Region of Ghana. The Coastal Sustainable Landscapes Project (CSLP).
The project employs CSA and NRM techniques such as composting,
IMP, tree planting and neem extract application as sustainable
environment approaches to mitigating climate change. Tree
planting and mangrove enrichment are the prime focus of the
project since they serves as the major carbon sink/sequestrate.
TRACTOR in partnership with CSLP also established a typical
agroforestry demonstration field at Angu in the Mpohor district.
The project is being currently implemented within 14 communities
with more than 2000 farmers receiving trainings in climate smart
agriculture, agroforestry management modules and VSLA. The
project is embedded within broader and multi-partner food
security, biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation
and environmental governance. At the same time, farmers
capacities are built through short and medium term livelihood
improvement activities such as bee keeping, increased vegetable
production and establishment of woodlots for charcoal
production. This intervention is gradually transforming the
lives of beneficiary farmers in the project jurisdiction.
