The project aims to increase resilience and strengthen the natural resource and economic asset base for poor rural women and men by helping smallholder tea producers increase their yields through replantation and therefore providing a source of income through new rubber plantations. The programme works with 35,000 existing tea smallholders and 15, 000 poor households involved in rubber production and processing. On land and natural resource governance, the project aims to improve tenure security and land access as the benefits will increase the role of women in the plantation sector, increase capacity building and training opportunities and increase access to on and off-farm activities. The project activities include participatory mapping and analysis.
