This initiative is in line with the activities of SOCODEVI which supports in these regions the CAC-Miel, a young agri-food cooperative set up to buy the honey production of its members and to structure the packaging and marketing of honey from Casamance. The specific objectives are as follows: - To strengthen the capacities of the ESC participants on modern beekeeping techniques resilient to climate change. - To improve both the quantity and quality of honey produced, taking into account the health and safety of beekeepers. - Support the development of beekeeping MSEs and their links with other actors in the value chain. - To fight against climate change by reducing the use of fossil fuels in the process of treatment and conditioning of honey and the reforestation in the zones of production. A particular emphasis will be placed on the introduction of agroforestry activities through the planting of melliferous species to improve honey production, bee habitat and carbon absorption.
To improve the incomes of the members of CAC-Honey by increasing the production and marketing of the honey of its members .
