IMPLEMENTING NATURE-BASED
SOLUTIONS TO ADAPT TO CLIMATE

It was such a productive and a successful workshop where the group of women exchanged knowledge and learned from each other and how to better conserve, adapt and protect our environment. In addition to this, understanding our gender roles within our communities.
