Agroforestry and 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.
