The ECDD project finished mid-2013. The Comorian NGO Dahari was created as a key outcome of ECDD, and you can read about their activities at www.daharicomores.org. Final reports from the ECDD project are available here, and the final films are here.
Engagement Communautaire pour le Développement Durable (ECDD) was a project working in the Comoro Islands to develop a model for community landscape management, integrating improved livelihoods and the sustainable management of natural resources – soil, water, forest and biodiversity.
Komori ya lao na meso was the project’s slogan which means ‘The Comoros of today and tomorrow’.
The project was a partnership between Bristol Conservation and Science Foundation, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières and the Government of the Union of the Comoros, alongside other local partners. Principal funders were the Agence Française de Développement, the UK government’s Darwin Initiative and the Global Environment Facility.
