The Alliance for Empowering Rural Communities and partners, have pledged their contribution to the protection of nature, awareness raising and support to communities in managing their natural resources amid the commemoration of this year’s World Environment day.
They seek to educate the general public on the need for conservation and adapting ecovillage strategies as models for sustainable development.
