Imiti Ikula Empanga Environment and Development Organisation (IIEEDO)

IIEEDO is a community based response to environment degradation and socio-economic insecurity. It has been reconstituted in 2007, as an outgrowth of Mayo Mpapa organisation founded in 1992. IIEEDO is the response to rural community powerlessness and poverty and consequent environment unfriendly means of scraping for livelihoods.

For the last three years, IIEEDO has been initiating activities that promote conservation consciousness and good environment husbandry by prospecting for commercial crop growing and trading as an alternative to earning income from environmentally damaging burning and trading in charcoal. IIEEDO has already ventured to initiate income generation by sourcing markets for small scale farmers, household food security through food crop growing and natural resources conservation through disincentive against charcoal business. Results of these interventions are to uplift livelihoods and begin to reverse the trend of wanton deforestation, through opening of linkages to markets. This is accomplished through communities, not by promising hand outs, but is ready to provide any technical guidance to entrepreneurial production and marketing.
