25/03/2022

The national project management unit in Niger conducted in Bangoula, March 21-22, 2022, a series of training sessions on various topics, namely Climate Change, Sustainable Land Management and Disaster Management, for technicians and teachers of the three neighbouring towns of the W-Niger National Park.

In this context, the participants had the opportunity to work based on specific training modules, recently developed for them within the framework of the Adaptation-Fund financed AdaptWAP project. Thus, 25 training technicians and 30 teachers benefited from this training and they will have to train producers and schoolchildren in the relevant towns.

Stakeholder capacity building is a highly important component in the implementation of the project-related adaptation measures. The various training programs scheduled in the three project countries (Benin, Burkina Faso and Benin), shall guarantee the sustainability of the activities undertaken, contribute to maintaining the balance of ecosystems and improving the adaptation capacities of the communities neighbouring the park.
