Sustainable Landscapes in Eastern Madagascar
Sustainable landscape measures to enhance resilience of smallholders, reducing GHG emissions and channelling private finance into climate-smart investments in agriculture and renewable energy.
Madagascar is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world, with large numbers of smallholding farmers. There is a high level of food insecurity, precarity, and vulnerability to climate change. The landscape is dominated by natural forest, but deforestation is a source of GHG emissions and degradation of ecosystem services.
The project model is to initially address smallholder vulnerability through non-profit activities, that will prepare the smallholding farmers to eventually access private sector investment, providing a pathway out of extreme vulnerability and dependency. This approach is aimed at overcoming the barriers to private sector investment. Funds will be leveraged through the issuing of a pioneering Green / Climate Bond with all returns and profits being re-invested to capitalise a Climate Change Trust Fund for Madagascar. This will enable continued investment in landscape-level adaptation and mitigation activities.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 10 years.
