HiHZim on Climate Change
Climate change continues to bring devastation and suffering to several rural communities in Africa with millions of people facing starvation each year due to perennial droughts and floods. To help reduce effects of climate change, Hand in Hand Zimbabwe (HiH Zim) has adopted a mitigation approach, which will not only curb climate change but also create Green jobs for resource-constrained community members.
Through the Green Enterprise and Community Upliftment Projects, HiH Zim is capacitating entrepreneurs under its portfolio – particularly women and youth – to implement sustainable projects that tackle climate change and its effects.
Some of the climate change adaptative strategies adopted by HiH Zim supported entrepreneurs in Gwanda, Bulilima, Chikomba, Chirumanzu, Lupane and Nkayi include climate-smart agriculture, tree planting, beekeeping, afforestation, reforestation and agroforestry among others.
