Restoring degraded soil and increasing soil fertility for farmers in Woldiya district (Ethiopia)

Titre : Restoring degraded soil and increasing soil fertility for farmers in Woldiya district (Ethiopia)

Pays /Région : Ethiopia
Localisation : four kebeles of Woldiya district

Date : 2017 // 2021

Descriptif
Mennonite Central Committee Canada is supporting Ethiopian Mulu Wongel Amongnoch Church Development Organization with an 8-month extension to a three-year agriculture and livelihoods project in four kebeles of Woldiya district. The initial project totaled $1.3 million, and the extension is $102,000. Most households in this area are smallholder farmers that cultivate plots less than one hectare in size. These farmers struggle to produce enough food to feed their households.

This project will work with farmers to reshape water catchment structures to avoid heavy run-off, and provide training on conservation agriculture techniques to restore degraded land and increase soil fertility. The project will also help communities form self-help groups to encourage families to save for future investments or emergencies.

1,268 families (about 6,300 people) will benefit.
