Improved Farming and Livelihoods for Women
Children beneficiaries of a greenhouse manage by Ghuncha Gul, in Injil district of Herat province. Other greenhouse holder, Nafisa and her family are beneficiaries of the Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCAP), which is implemented by UNDP and Ministry of Agriculture. The project provided her with a greenhouse, seeds for vegetables, as well as the necessary training to become a successful small-scale farmer. To diversify livelihoods and improve women’s economic freedom, UNDP has implemented several other projects in Herat districts. These include: 6 raisin houses, 10 greenhouses, 1 apiary, and kitchen gardens for 30 women.
UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCAP), is a five-year project, made possible by the Global Environment Facility Least Developed Countries Fund. Over the next three years, together with the Ministry of Agriculture, UNDP will implement more than 100 livelihoods projects, including building more greenhouses and training farmers on food processing and food storage, as well as protecting 800 hectares of land from flooding, irrigate 4,000 hectares of agricultural land and repairing 30 canals.
