Primary target group: The project target is 3360 (14x30x8) primary beneficiaries. The project partner will reach women and youth organized into 2 FFELGs groups from each of the respective 07 sub counties. A total 14 FFELGs are targeted, with each comprising of 30 households. The project shall apply a pro-people centered approach at every level of planning and implementation. Women and youth shall be key in determining enterprises to engage in. They will be involved in the identification of capacity gaps and planning for capacity building interventions. They will apply dialogue to engage local authorities and private sector. They will be key drivers in positive community environmental conservation and stewardship. Secondary Target Groups: The project anticipates that once those secondary target groups are reached, it will facilitate extension of the project benefits to the wider estimated total population of 229.000 people. Such groups will include the: • Local Environment Committees at the various local government structures. 12 • Local cultural and religious leadership, structures and institutions. • Academic institutions of learning and research. • Community members.
The proposed intervention aims to promote practical approaches to environmental conservation awareness, governance and climate smart livelihood practices among rural communities in the Soroti District and its sub-counties. The choice to implement the intervention in the district is guided by the prevalence of adverse negative effects of climate change due to environment degradation and the demand by the respective community and the leadership in the district to promote environmental conservation and stewardship.
