Forest and Agriculture Diversification

 

An important constraint to implementing sustainable agriculture and forestry practices is the limited number of crops and products that our communities rely on for income generation and for their general livelihoods. Identifying and promoting currently minor agriculture and tree crops and products that have the potential to enhance the income of farmers and communities will provide a vital contribution towards the implementation of sustainable practices by our people. Through the EU-funded FACT Pilot Project, direct assistance is being provided to selected partner enterprises in both forestry and agriculture to enhance their exporting capacities.
