The United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals, adopted in 2015 in the Paris agreement, cite three key challenges to respond to climate change (goal 13).

The proposed solutions are based on climate-related resilience and adaptation capacities;

  • the implementation of national measures;
  • and education and awareness-raising on climate change issues.

Kinome’s actions, in the least developed countries and in France, are fully in line with these three targets.

Kinomé is part of the transition levers and acts in favor of the fight against climate change by directly supporting local populations in adapting to climate change risks and mitigating the effects of climate change.

 On this theme, Kinomé intervenes in Madagascar with the project Improving the Adaptation and Resilience of Rural Communities to Climate Change (PACARC). With this project, our consultants aim to raise awareness and strengthen the capacities of decision-makers, technicians and vulnerable communities in the face of climate change.

Similarly, Kinomé has continued to move forward with researchers from the Technical Unit of Coffee and Cocoa in Togo to guide farmers in associating trees with coffee and cocoa trees. The association between cocoa trees and shade trees allows carbon sequestration in agroforestry plots, while improving the living conditions of farmers in terms of food security and alternative income. Under the partnership with Forest&Life, more than 55,000 trees have been planted in Togo.

Kinomé continues its activity with the 5Deltas collective in Senegal, Benin, Mauritania, Gambia, Guinea and Guinea Bissau with the deployment of joint projects for mangrove forest management. The objective is the sharing of an integrated protection of mangrove ecosystems in West Africa, and a strengthened resilience to climate change.
