Project Description

The objective of this FAO, UNEP and Government of Sudan project is to assist displaced populations and conflict-affected communities in Darfur, Sudan to obtain and use fuel wood in a sustainable, resource-efficient manner. The project has many success. The project produced 72,900 fuel efficient stoves successfully. There were 342 women trained on fuel efficient stove production and maintenance increases community ownership have trained over 50,000 other women. The community forests contributed to sustainable local wood supply for fuel, fodder and construction. The capacity of government agencies, local communities and NGOs has improved in forest management. Recommendations of FES reviews were used to inform and design FAO programming related to FES. Other project impacts include: Tree seedlings distributed had survival rate of about 50 percent despite poor rainfall in some areas; contributed to reforestation of degraded areas, impacting on crop and pasture production; provided farmers with additional income from planted fruit trees, as well as improved diets from consumption of fruits.
