Eco-Friendly Livelihood

MELCA piloted integration of agro-ecology development with improved livelihoods. Improved livelihood will be realized through practical farm management trainings, supply of clean agricultural inputs and technologies, improved agricultural practices and by engaging women, men and the youth in off-farm and non-farm income generating activities such as fuel saving stove production, animal fattening, beekeeping and petty trade activities. Our livelihood program component will have no negative environmental impacts. Rather, they support eco-friendly agricultural practices and means of livelihoods by promoting the use of clean agricultural inputs and technologies as well as off-farm and non-farm income generating activities.
