VIDEO: Your Environment is Your Life
‘Your Environment is Your Life’ is a four year project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union (EU) that seeks to reduce hunger and food insecurity by improving rangeland conditions in the Puntland State of Somalia. Adeso and CARE are co-implementing the project in close collaboration with Puntland’s Ministry of Environment, Wildlife and Tourism (MoEWT), nomadic pastoralist and agro-pastoralist communities and associations, and local women organizations. The initiative will cover the regions of Sool, Sanaag, Bari, Mudug and Nugal. The initiative offers Puntland’s broader community - including pastoral families, urban households, IDPs, the business community and charcoal traders - the opportunity to collectively benefit from improved and sustainable rangeland resources, alternative energy sources and employment opportunities.
