Results achieved by this project, which ended June 2012, include: The installation of 54 water tanks has given local communities easier access to drinking water for use at home and for watering small vegetable gardens. Ongoing watershed development, soil conservation, and reforestation activities are helping to reduce soil erosion, and reforestation activities are helping to reduce vulnerability to flooding. A total of 495,000 trees were planted, including 150,000 for watershed management, 45 000 to reforest a mangrove, and 300,000 for pollination. Nearly 12 km of coastline and two beaches were cleaned up at the three sites. 240 officials were trained in environmental protection and adapting to climate change. Measures to reduce erosion were put into place for 213 hectares of land. These results have contributed to increasing the awareness of local residents and elected officials to environmental issues and improving environmental protection in the targeted areas.
