Final Evaluation of the Project “Land Rehabilitation and Rangelands Management in Smallholders Agro-pastoral Production Systems in South Western Angola (RETESA)”

16/09/2019

In Southwest Angola, the impacts of climate change have contributed to a reduction in soil coverage and an increase in soil erosion. To address these challenges, the GEF project "Land Rehabilitation and Rangelands Management in Smallholders Agro-pastoral Production Systems in South Western Angola” supported activities contributing to the strengthening of capacity and increase in knowledge for the participatory planning of mainstreamed land management. The project contributed to several outcomes at institutional level and increased community awareness and capacity on sustainable agriculture systems. Although there is evidence of an improvement in the livelihoods of the beneficiaries, the project achievement of the environmental objective is moderately satisfactory as rehabilitation of rangelands takes a significant amount of time to generate effects.  Moving forward, to see impacts there is the need for beginning a project outcome sustainability strategy right from project start, in addition to promote partnerships with national research institutions to generate national and regional knowledge.
