ADWAC - Intervention Areas

ADWAC adopts a multi-dimensional approach to development that combines efforts to address the immediate practical needs of communities as well as their long term strategic needs. ADWAC adopts a holistic approach to development that uses a variety of interventions to address the social, economic and environmental needs of target constituents. Amongst the key intervention programs include upland and lowland conservation works. More specifically, dike construction, water harvesting, contour bunds and diversions, mangroves rehabilitation/regeneration, community forestry, agro-forestry activities, woodlot establishment, land reclamation, improving crop yields and the introduction of improved farming practices and training are among the measures being implemented with beneficiaries. An energy component which seeks to promote the use of improved stoves to reduce deforestation and dependency on the limited forest resources is also promoted as a supplementary program to other interventions. Other complementary activities geared towards strengthening impact and effects of its work ADWAC also provide adult and early child hood education, Health and development, gender and women’s right, governance at local level, water and sanitation as well as micro-credit for promotion of local enterprises development especially for women. A WASH program that provides portable drinking water, community sanitary facilities and hygiene promotion in schools and communities is also promoted. Viewed from a cross cutting perspective impacting on all the above ADWAC’s work in climate change focuses on awareness creation, adaptation of resilience techniques, environmental conservation as well as institutional, technical, political, social and economic support to vulnerable and poor small holder farmers. More details of what we do to supplement food security and environmental management programmes are as follows:
