Women agricultural cooperatives ensuring sustainable livelihoods in climate and armed conflict impacted areas
Description of the project
By promoting collective, sustainable models of agriculture, the project supports the climate- resilient livelihood of food insecure women who have been dependent on humanitarian aid. The project has been successful in improving the climate and overall resilience of over 18,900 individuals in 26 communities in Palestine. This has been achieved by enabling 35 CBOs, out of which 24 are women’s rural cooperatives, to better respond to their communities’ food and water needs while facing climate change under territorial occupation.
