Safeguards Information


Developed Landscape Management Board (LMB) for one traditional section (stool) of the HIA which is analogous to the HMB.  The key next step is to mainstream activities of the LMB into that of the broader HIA and also develop the governance structures for the remaining traditional stool land areas for inclusivity.


Main Activities:

Supply of Shade Tree Seedlings to farmers to be planted in their farms.

Training of stakeholders on REDD+ safeguards instruments (ESMF, SESA).

Provision of alternative livelihoods for farmers.
