Mapping of sustainable solutions

Resilience Now promotes the sharing of practices that help local communities improve their quality of life and reduce their pressure on natural resources. These practices are in the fields of agriculture, energy and income generation.They are sought within the country, as a solution already developped locally is a guarantee of its relevance and faisability.

Some of these practices have been identified and are shared below. This inventory is shared under two medias: a spreadsheet and an electronique map. The information is the same under the two medias. This inventory is not exhaustive and will have to be updated on a regular basis.
