    Considerable progress for Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI)

    NOK 10 billion in development aid combined with six years’ work have contributed to conserving natural forest and to establishing systems for the reduction of deforestation and for the inclusion of the conservation of forests in international climate change negotiations. A new report from Norad evaluates the initiative and shows that results have been achieved in spite of weak pre-initiative planning and poor reporting during its implementation.

  • Comaco (Community Markets for Conservation) er en NGO med base i Luangwa dalen i Zambia. Organisasjonens strategi er å finne økonomiske løsninger for å løfte lokale bønder ut av fattigdom. Samtidig oppfordres det til å bruke ny kunnskap for å dyrke jorden slik at avlingene øker. En annen viktig rolle i lokalmiljøet er å rehabilitere krypskyttere til bønder for å minske risikoen for ulovlig jakt i den nærligende South Luangwa National Park. Mye av avlingene som bøndene dyrker blir prosesert av Coamaco og selges over hele Zambia under varemerket It´s Wild. Peanøttsmør, ris, bønner og honning er noen av produktene i vare utvalget deres.
