Farming depend on flood and tube well irrigation. Farmers suffered a great deal of losses due to fuel prices rise coincide with poor Market prices for their products and ceased farming accordingly. Farmers are straggling to shift their irrigation system towards solar driven pump in their attempt to reduce farming expenses. All farms around the areas uses intensive labour force mostly comes from displaced community due to civil war. Crops produces are vegetables, fodder and cereals with fewer fruits. The aims of the project are : 1) To assist 12 farmers’ groups to acquire solar systems for irrigation in Ubr Al-Hadharem, Al-thalab and Sallam and 2) to assist farmers in Ubr Sallam to manage siltation brought by flood that elevate ground through Ubr sallam hindering flood water from arriving its destinationfarms. A discharge outlet with flood control gate is planned to solve this problem. The project will directly benefit 75 families (451 inhabitants being 233 males and 218 females) in addition to 500 seasonal labours from displaced communities. Further, the project will enable farmers to save monetary value for each group (well) US$ 5761.11 and US$ 77/family/year and to avoid the elimination to the environment of 227 tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) per year.
