- Funding: LIFT (Livelihood and Food security Trust Fund)
- Zone of intervention:50 villages in the area of Labutta
19 months after cyclone Nargis, difficult access to the area and lack of investments make it virtually to revive the populations' main sources of revenue (agriculture, fishing, breeding, pisciculture, etc.). This project is therefore aimed at strengthening the population's agricultural produce in order to restore the economic cycle, source of employment and livelihood opportunities, and thus reduce the population's vulnerability and improve food safety.
To achieve this, Triangle is implementing several activities:
- Provide 75 boats and 225 nets specially suited to local fishing techniques in order to revive the intermediary fishing sector,
- Rehabilitate dikes to protect 500 hectares of cultivable land in 50 villages; this activity will provide waged jobs to 156 people per day and area,
- Provide "baby shrimps" to restore fish farming.
- Provide 250 water buffalos and rototillers to prepare the land and restore rice cultures,
- Provide spare parts for the rototillers and organise mechanical engineering training in each village,
- Provide rice seed for 5000 acres and fuel for the rototiller (land preparation mostly involves water buffalos).
Diversification of revenues at family level
- Provide 1000 pigs to vulnerable households to revive livestock breeding at family level,
- Provide 4000 family gardening kits (tools and seeds) to enable cultivation of 2 acres per family.
