Recent Case Study: Greenglobe Ghana
The IPSI Secretariat recently received a case study from partner organization Greenglobe Ghana
, titled "Conserving Biodiversity and Livelihood Enhancement: the case of Saviefe Communities on the Weto Landscape in Ghana".
The Weto Landscape, a world classified biodiversity hotspot has been realized to be losing its natural resources as a result of unsustainable use, hence the need for activities towards resilience. Forests have disappeared. The mountain range contains several animal species which are becoming endangered and scarce, land has degraded, and virtually little concerted resource management action through livelihood activities as well as feeble authoritative action concerning resource use prevails. In response to the Weto landscape resilience call by the COMDEKS Project
, an IPSI collaborative activity implemented by UNDP through the GEF Small Grants Programme, Greenglobe Ghana, an environmental organization proposed and implemented initiatives that demonstrated livelihood support with integrating biological, indigenous knowledge and cultural diversity in the landscape communities under the working topic, “Livelihood Promotion and Institutional Building for Natural Resource Management.”
