An Overview Of Our Solution
- Population Impacted
- Continent: Africa
Abuko Nature Reserve PMB 676
Local resources the community depends on, and for what purpose
Local threats to resources
Level of sensitivity
Level of adaptive capacity
? Diversified or alternative livelihoods To support local communities livelihoods projects such as Bee keeping, fishing board, woodlots and gardens so as to abandon the ecosystem . ? Improved food security : By conduct mangrove planting to improve the fish breeding area and establish aquaculture, were the soft projects to support the ecosystem
Economic Indicators used to measure benefit
-Sustainable mangrove ecosystem
Community/Social Indicators used to measure benefit
- Job training - Cost of community meetings (with amount)
- Additional income
Ecological Indicators used to measure benefit
- Community reports
What were/are the challenges your community faced in implementing this solution?
The challenges are lack of technical know how lack of resources How to overcome WABSA will raise funds to build the capacity of the local community and give them such project to boast their income. If solutions were in place there will be no risks because their capacity will be raise .
Describe the community-based process used to develop the solution including tools and processes used
WABSA and Wildlife Department conduct mangrove assessment in the north bank region with the local community. The local communities own their resource so any activity or decision making they most be involve. The partners were community development, Wildlife and forestry Department. The roles of the community development is to mobilize communities, wildlife and forestry are to sensitizes the local communities. Length of implementation. Depend on the project term. West African Bird Study Association is responsible for the managements and coordination of the project
Climate hazard of concern
How does your solution reduce the exposure of and buffer/protect the ecosystem affected?
The ecosystem need to be protect from exploitation which is main cause by natural or anthropogenic the best way is to plant more mangroves stump and indigenous seedling to protect the ecosystem
How has your solution increased the capacity of the ecosystem to adapt to potential climate changes?
To plant mangroves in the degraded area will help to adapt potential climate change .and also to plant more tree seedling in identified potential side.
How does your solution reduce the exposure of and buffer/protect the communities affected?
Local community involvement in the protection of the ecosystem through sensitization and by laws place
How does your solution reduce the sensitivity of the communities affected?
Reforestations of degraded areas affected
How has your solution increased the capacity of local communities to adapt to potential climate changes?
Involve the local communities in workshop and sensitization in related to climate issues
Can this solution be replicated elsewhere?
Yes it can be replicated . factor to make it successful are to conduct side identification to know the areas to be replicated and sensitization to the local communities about the project coming.It has not yet been replicate to new side. Obviously it can be new solution to the local communities because some of them have never experience this convenience
