Rural Development, Livelihoods and Conservation
Sustainable management of the natural resources is not only key for the livelihood resilience and adaptive climate change capacity of the rural communities but also for the protection of nature and its biodiversity. We strongly believe in a participative approach based on the principle of self-reliance involving all relevant local key stakeholders from the very beginning of any initiative.
