The impact of climate change has brought about a number of diverse effects on the welfare of people at community level especially among women and girls in Low Income Countries (LICs) like Malawi. Thus, in a bid to prevent further environmental degradation, YONECO conducted a sensitization meeting with community members at Njonjo Village, Group Village Head (GVH) Chopi in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Malemia in Zomba District.
The session was aimed at promoting awareness on the effects of climate change. During the session, the community members were taught on how to make compost manure which helps in improving soil structure further to this the participants were also encouraged to establish communal woodlots.
The session was attended by 112 people of which 22 were men and 90 were women.
