Resilience Programming for Reforestation: Lessons from Haiti
USAID Reforestation Project, Chemonics
The USAID Reforestation Project shares lessons learned on how to incorporate resilience building, sustainable landscape management and social capital into programming.
This brief focuses on three key lessons learned:
Determining the importance of social capital for resilience
Leveraging social capital to establish community buy-in
Linking resilience activities to specific shocks
The USAID Reforestation Project applied the lessons above to implement a refined reforestation approach, which may be relevant to other projects incorporating components of resilience building, sustainable landscape management and reforestation. The purpose of this brief is to document these insights and their relevance for this and other projects moving forward.
The brief was authored by Rebecca Chamberlin (Chemonics) and Emily Keller-Coffey (Chemonics), with contributions from Andy Hale (Chemonics) and Oscar Jacob (Chemonics).
