Promoting Agroforestry has been identified as a key approach to combating the effects of climate change on rural communities where Propcom intervenes, especially in the North East, and a means to support the rural poor cope with the changes.
Through our Agroforestry intervention we use economic trees, such as Gum Arabic, as channels for promoting tree rehabilitation. We establish sustainable agroforestry systems and create positive messaging on conservation, as well as efficiently source tree crop products from rural communities. All these we do working with private sector partners who deal in produce
The traditional method of openly drying farm produce by direct exposure to the sun reduces the quality of produce due to contamination and increases loss. Through our solar drying intervention, we facilitate rural farmers’ access to efficient drying services using renewable energy source and support off-taking of their dried produce. Osomobegbe Global Ventures (OGV) is a key partner in this intervention.
