Over a series of seminars and community visits across the region ADMAPE have been raising awareness of climate change and strategies to combat it. Members from twenty-two families from the Winy Jammy area north of Leqceiba attended a seminar where they agreed that they would form a pastoralists union.
ADMAPE have worked directly with 28 women’s cooperatives over the past two years. Inputs have included: agronomic, organisational and managerial training; market research and advice; supply of selected seeds and small tools; training in agro-forestry and the supply of fruit trees; supply of fencing materials for 6 cooperatives; supply of 1-cylinder water pumps to 4 cooperatives; food processing research and training.
Having for many years worked with farmers involved in this struggling commercial sector (on diversification, management and low-external input methods), activities have recently revolved around the promotion of organic rice production and the new concept of growing irrigated of off-season crops such as maize, millet, vegetables and fodder crops.
