COMACO is mitigating key drivers of environmental degradation compounded by poverty among the households across a rural landscape in Zambia, through the promotion of climate-smart agriculture and sustainable forest management. COMACO engages farmers in a food production value chain that provides market incentives for promoting climate-smart practices and improved community land-use planning. The products that COMACO manufactures are sold under the brand “It’s Wild,” and their proceeds support annual conservation dividend payments to communities that meet conservation standards.
