Sustainable Agriculture and Community Resilience Project

The focus of this project is on assisting ten communities in the provinces of West New Britain, Bougainville and Manus to improve their quality of life by providing agriculture and fishery-based alternative livelihoods, clean water supply and sanitation and hygiene needs.

Each of the communities are located on small outlying islands that are very susceptible to the effects of climate change. Started in 2013 and running until December 2016, Caritas supports this project with financial help from the government’s New Zealand Aid Programme. It follows on from a very successful pilot project in Kimbe.

Read about the Kimbe livelihood pilot project in Kapo Village in the Caritas Update No. 55 and One World Partnership Newletter No. 25.

One part of this project is focussed on supporting villages in West New Britain, as well as a community of Carteret Islanders that have been relocated to Tinputz in Bougainville, to grow and produce cocoa for sale.
