Mission completed for the IRHA Senegal team!
After ten intensive days of data collection in Keur Maba Diakhou Bamunicipality (Kaolack region), it is time to handover to the APAF Senegal team for agroforestry nurseries monitoring, in the five beneficiary villages of #ofeathandrain project!
Huge thanks to Yancoba Sall Diene, advisor in agroforestry techniques of the area and Mr. Dramé, agroforestry farmer from Mandera, teacher at hight school and very committed eco-citizen, for their formidable involvement in this mission, which was not an easy task!
Between the management of barrier measures in pandemia situation (distribution of 750 masks to the stakeholders interviewed), increased rainfall at this rainy season beginning and intensity of exchanges, with nearly 300 stakeholders interviewed, 80 infrastructures diagnosed and 30 plots geolocated, this collective adventure was rich in encounters and discoveries.
The municipality of Keur Maba Diakhou Ba turns out to be full of potentials, but also full of socio-economic and environmental issues to be taken up and this in close collaboration with a landscape of dynamic actors, both at the local authority level, as well as technical services and civil society!
