Vision (Detailed statement by groups of men and women)

In communities Tibtenga, Koubi-thiou, Ramdola, Lemnogo Mossi and Pabio, men harvest enough to ensure food security. They value the feed to increase livestock and ensure the health of livestock. Water is available enough and accessible to humans and livestock. The territories are well wooded. Houses and infrastructure (store, park vaccination) are resistant to climate change and the villages are opened up. People are educated and have knowledge and skills to diversify their sources of income. Communities strengthen their partnership with technical and administrative services. Women use tree species adapted to the environment to restore the canopy. Drinking water is available enough and accessible for humans and livestock. Women protect crops to increase agricultural productivity, have enough food for humans and livestock and food security. The houses are hard to resist to the effects of weather conditions. People improve their access to credit and become financially independent. People are well trained, competent and in good health. The animals are healthy. They have access to increased technical and administrative services. 

In summary, in five rural communities, men and women are healthy, educated and skilled for agricultural production. Men and women restore natural resources with species adapted to climate hazards and strengthen their partnership with technical services for food self-sufficiency of humans and their livestock, financial autonomy and improved infrastructure

Boundary partners                 Outcome Challenge
Village communities   Village communities engage regularly with the various technical and financial partners, to organize by area of ​​agro-forestry-pastoral production and follow the advice of partners.
Government extension services Extension services (central and decentralized) intensify their collaboration with producers for the modernization and professionalization of agro-forestry-pastoral production to increase 10% productivity.
Research institutes Research institutes (INERA, INSS, ICRAF, etc.) strengthen the partnership with the local populations and extension services for a more enhanced action-research in the areas of water and soil conservation, soil defence and restoration, agro forestry, animal and seed production and local governance of natural resources.
Non-governmental organizations NGOs and local associations engage in networking and synergy to harmonize their interventions in the field of climate change adaptation in the northern region through capacity building, equipment and financing activities.
Nature conservation organizations Nature conservation organizations such as IUCN develop and strengthen partnerships with research institutes, decentralized government extensions services and local NGOs for a synergy of action to achieve high efficiency with village communities.
