The objective of the project is to promote the widespread adoption of clean and environmentally friendly technologies for women entrepreneurs in the mangrove regions of Benin. This reduces the workload of women and improves their income and well-being while reducing their carbon footprint.

The specific objectives are to promote the adoption of solar cooking technology in salt production and fish smoking in the mangrove areas of Benin; to document the impact on the living conditions of women and on the environment; and to promote the production and use of compost in market gardening. The project also intends to safeguard Benin’s mangrove areas, promote ecotourism in these areas, and improve living conditions for women in the region.
