Description

The main problem necessitating the executing of this project is the depleting of freshwater fish along the portion of the Volta River, depletion of fuel wood and sacred groove resources in the Fievie community. These are caused by loss of fish and aquatic biodiversity due to uncontrolled fishing, over dependence on or unsustainable utilization of forest floral and faunal diversity at the sacred groove as well as inadequate woodlot establishment at the community level. These problems are further caused by lack of knowledge in fish farming and fisheries management, inadequate skills and knowledge in sacred groove forest resources management and lack of funds to support woodlot establishment.


The overall goal of the project is to conserve and develop the biological diversity of both within and along Fievie portion of the Volta River and the sacred groove and improve of the living standards of the people in the community.
