Reasons to Bee Cheerful: Raising Incomes, and Letting Bees Do the Work

UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCAP), implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, is committed to helping rural families increase their incomes. Beekeeping in rural areas, where the communities have limited resources such as land and water, can help boost incomes for families.

As part of the livelihood component, the project provided four beehives, beekeeping tools and jars for honey, and, crucially, a 12-day training that gave beneficiaries the necessary skills to maintain their beekeeping business. Karima, who lives in in Qala Safid village in Herat province, was one of the recipients. Produced by: UNDP / Omer Sadaat / 2018
