Organisations working in SADC TFCAs are invited to submit project proposals for such demonstration projects, which may include the following topics: alternative livelihoods, climate smart agriculture, aquaculture, fisheries, forestry (e.g. REDD), rangeland management, and ecosystem-based adaptation/ nature-based solutions. The demonstration projects are planned to start in early 2021.
