Haitukubuli Sustainable Agroforestry and Cultural Tourism: Community-led Climate Resilience in the Kalinago Territory, Dominica and Grand Anse Haiti – From April 2021 to March 2022

The use of resilient traditional species and agroforestry is an important lever for preserving cultural heritages and promoting sustainable tourism.

Organisations


  • Kalinago Institute for Global Resilience & Regeneration (KIGRR)
  • Coopérative Agricole Union Développement (CAUD)
Project description





The project aims to:

  • Restore ecosystems and protect biodiversity;
  • Develop agro-tourism and local economies through the green economy (income generation) and the revitalisation of crafts and the conservation of sacred sites;
  • Reduce the impacts of climate change on the farmers daily life;
  • Highlight the major role of women and young people in environmental awareness;
  • Sensitise communities to the impacts of climate change and promote rural tourism valuing local resources in a resilience approach.
Main activities





  • Identify watersheds in the two territories, suitable for receiving the targeted cultivation practices (forest trees, cocoa trees, Larhouma)
  • Share the experiences and technical skills of partner organisations
  • Implement a training of trainers program
  • Provide populations with plants and support planting actions
  • Develop agro-tourism products: development of trails, development of routes
Strengths



The project responds to the issues of adaptation to climate change in terms of forestry and plant cover. The association of environment and sustainable tourism from an alternative perspective of tourism products is relevant in terms of capitalization and replicability in other territories and countries of the Caribbean.
