Tropenbos International Suriname (TBI), recently finalized the 18-month project, ‘Participatory mapping, ecosystem service assessment, and resilience against climate change’. One of the grant facility projects of the Global Climate Change Alliance Suriname Adaptation+ Project which is financed by UNDP and the EU.
TBI worked together with government and non-governmental partners to train 14 people in the Samaaka village of Pikin Slee, on how to deal with these changes. Paula Doekoe, a trainee of the Saamaka village of Pikin Slee, plants crops such as rice, plantain, sweet potatoes and several vegetables. The voice of women like her is important in rural areas. That’s why she is glad she’s learned new methods to use alongside the knowledge she already has.
