Reforesting the degraded Upper Rio Minho Watershed in Clarendon

Alleng and a team from the Adaptation Programme and Financing Mechanism (AP&FM) of the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR) were doing a tour of the Reforestation and Agroforestry initiatives in the Upper Rio Minho Watershed area of Clarendon last Friday (August 23, 2019). The Watershed is regarded as one of the most degraded in the island yet it is responsible for over 20% of the water produced in central Jamaica. The AP&FM with funding from the Climate Investment Funds through the IDB is working with 33 communities in the Watershed to restore the watershed and boost the climate resilience of the communities there. The replanting exercise was organized by the Northern Rio Minho Local Forest Management Committee.
