DR-T1157 : Support for the Design of the Sustainable Agroforestry Development Program
Project Status: Closed
The objective of the TC is to support the Government of the Dominican Republic in its ongoing efforts to recover degraded watersheds through reforestation in the upper watersheds and agroforestry in the middle and lower watersheds. The expected results of the Program are to improve ecosystem services, especially quantity and quality of water, reduce farmers´ poverty and vulnerability to climate change. The TC will finance consulting services, public consultations and workshops to assist the Administrative Ministry of the Presidency, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources in the conceptualization, design, and implementation at a larger scale of the proposed interventions. The operation is the "Sustainable Agroforestry Development Program - DR-L1120", which aims to improve sustainability of rural communities in high priority watershed through the adoption of low-carbon and climate-resilient agroforestry and forestry technologies by small farmers.
