Activities

Bringing Change

Community Mobilization

BCCN takes advantage of the different 'key moments' in the climate change agenda and utilizes these to mobilize and showcase the urgency to tackle climate change and call for climate justice.

Integrating Communities into NDC Processes

Botswana submitted its NDCs with a target to cut emissions by 15%. BCCN is working closely with communities to include them in NDC implementation processes. The Project's objective is to contribute to the country's efforts to maintain its carbon emissions threshold. The platform created allows communities to explore national priorities, different sectors' GHG contributions and map out feasible policy and programmatic intervention strategies.

Climate-Smart Agriculture

In recognition of the role smart gardening and conservation agriculture can play in promoting resilience in communities, BCCN is implementing a demonstration project that intends to integrate communities into innovative climate-smart agro-ecology, in an effort to assist them to adapt and become resilient against the impacts of climate change. The project supports local communities within the boundaries of Makgadikgadi Framework Management Plan. The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a smart solution to the production of crops and energy using agro-voltaic self-powered vertical hydroponic system, which uses liquid compost and an application for direct orders and payments between farmers and customers.
