The project aims to promote an inclusive and sustainable integral rural development in Cape Verde, getting over the central issues of the country, principally linked to the effects of climate change. The first objective is to ensure that producers and cooperatives in fruit, vegetable and dairy value chains are more organized, more inclusive for women and young people, more resilient to the effects of climate change on the islands of Santiago and Fogo of Cape Verde. Producers will be involved in processes of analysis, identification and solution proposals for a better efficiency and effectiveness of the fruit and vegetable and dairy chains. Adaptation to climate change and issues related to social organization will be considered during the project as they have been identified with one of the main causes of low productivity. In this way four results should be achieved: the first one is linked to the value chains, the second one to the mitigation and adaptation measures to climate changes, the third one to the modification and testing of innovative and sustainable production techniques and the fourth is linked to the organizational and association aspects of associations of producers and agricultural cooperatives. Beneficiaries, public and private subjects, will be called to dialogue and find together viable solutions, proper for the context, where COOPERMONDO and COSPE will share practices historically experimented Italy and in other parts of the world. The second objective aims to tackle social aspects, in particular with the most vulnerable categories already mentioned. The expectations are that women and young people of Santiago and Fogo will find new work inclusion areas in the value chains of fruit and vegetables and dairy products. To achieve this goal we need to articulate 3 results: on the one hand we need to take action on innovations and new work proposals, including private ones, in the value chain, to which young people and women can have access. Secondly, the dynamics of gender and family violence or common places must be eradicated, according to which some jobs, for example are considered suitable only for women or men. In this way, even in single-parent families case, women are unable to make their own choices autonomously. Finally, public dialogue and participation spaces must be guaranteed, where the requests and proposals of women and young people, as well as those of producers, can be accepted and implemented. read more close
