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.
