Project description

C4ES developed a Project Document for this Global Environment Facility/Least Developed Countries Fund-funded project. The project will build the capacity of local communities living around the Northern Pistachio Belt and Eastern Forest Complex of Afghanistan to the effects of climate change by improving watershed functioning through Ecosystem-based Adaptation approaches. This will be achieved by: i) building government’s capacity to address climate risks through improving watershed functioning; ii) improving the climate resilience of local communities through restoration of degraded forests; and iii) developing the knowledge base on forest restoration as an EbA approach in Afghanistan.
