The program is premised on an integrated approach that promotes sustainable agriculture, circular economy in developing capacities of women and youth led SME’s but also invest in technological innovations that contribute to climate resilience. The program operates at the nexus between policy and action for resilience building and innovation within the green and blue economy value chains. Further, the program focuses on renewable energy sub-sector in order to foster economic growth, enhance access, affordability, availability towards food security and job opportunities while conserving the natural ecosystem. The program acknowledges that depletion of the natural ecosystem and the climatic changes not only affect the human livelihoods, but also breeds conﬂicts arising from unsustainable utilization of the environment and its attendant resources. Thus, scarcity of natural resources, worsens environmental conditions and increases livelihood threats by causing stiffer competition over land, pasture, water, ﬁsh, minerals and forest resources.
