Social Forest-Food & Water Management Project in Saddang Watershed, Indonesia

The Saddang Watershed, where Landing resides, is the second-largest in South Sulawesi, with nearly one million people, mainly farmers and fishermen, depending on its resources. The Community Adaptation for Forest-Food Based Management in Saddang Watershed Ecosystem project, funded by the AF and implemented by Kemitraan, focuses on enhancing food security and diversification by implementing adaptive technologies, social forestry schemes, and mangrove rehabilitation across 15 villages. The project also aims to improve coastal governance, foster creative industry development, and empower local women and vulnerable groups.
