Producers’ Club Tete

The Producers’ Club Project aims to respond to the pressures of climate change on communities in 3 target districts in the Province of Tete. The project has been implemented in cooperation with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and local authorities since August 2016. The project’s organizational structure has been established and 40 Producer Clubs have been created and are operational.

 

The programme works with 2,000 families in the districts of Marara, Cahora Bassa and Magoe and its main objective is to promote synergies between natural resources and agricultural and fishing practices in order to increase farmers’ productivity and income. The programme focuses on introducing climate-resilient water and landscape management practices that create sustainable economic growth in communities, with private partners and public institutions involved. To this end, it focuses on:

  1. improving water management and water security;
  2. improving land management and resilience to climate change among farming families and communities;
  3. promoting new investments and business partnerships in the management of ecosystems and water resources;
  4. policy dialogue, policy formulation and sharing of learning and experiences to promote green growth in the Zambezi Valley.

 

The project has already achieved much in terms of behavioural changes through training communities on how to be self-reliant and have greater responsibility for conservation. Non-timber-based forestry products (value chains have been identified for honey and Baobab products) are also being sold through project partner MICAIA. Reforestation plans are underway to influence behaviour change within communities, along with local leaders and around schools. Communities now act to prevent unnecessary tree felling and work to reduce or sustainably produce charcoal. The project involved local natural resource committees and community advisory committees to work with the project on preserving natural forests through the Government’s “one leader, one forest” program. Members of organized fishing clubs have received fully equipped fishing boats after making a small down payment with the remainder paid as groups continue to catch and sell fish. Funds collected by savings groups will be used to buy more boats for other groups.
