Programs

UNYDA supports expansion and enhancement of existing fishing and farming practices to increase local food production in ways that are more adaptive to climate and environmental risks. Our activities include: staple food production, collective irrigation, vegetable production, livestock rearing, and fisheries which encourage collective actions and contribute to strengthening and diversifying livelihoods in the medium to long term. We also support various Income Generating Activities (IGAs) including bread-making, grinding mills, carpentry, brick-laying, soap making, craft-making, and blacksmiths among others
