Biftu Beri – The rising morning sun for climate-vulnerable women from Kumbi Kebele

In this story, we learn about the women of the Kumbi Kebele community in Ethiopia who have learned to battle climate change impacts to their livelihoods through leveraging loan and saving associations and cooperatives. Through Momina Adam's leadership, many of these women's lives have improved for the better. She and her team are teaching others to conserve their forest resources and improve their livelihoods. The women have been empowered and have benefited from agroforestry practices by planting trees with a variety of crops, fruits, and vegetables in backyard gardens around their homesteads, engaged in small businesses like shoats fattening, petty trading, and egg production. Amidst the challenges faced, they have learned to adapt and sustain themselves.
