Programme for the Mobilization of Surface Water and Sustainable Land Management (Djibouti)

Djibouti

Titre : Programme for the Mobilization of Surface Water and Sustainable Land Management (Djibouti)

Pays : Djibouti

Approval date : 13 December 2007

Organisme d’exécution : Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Marine Resources, in charge of Water Resources

Initiating institution : International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

Finalité et objectifs
The programme’s overall goal is to improve the living conditions of pastoral communities by promoting integrated management of natural resources.
The two specific objectives are :
1. to implement a programme for the mobilization of surface water to improve access to water for the pastoral communities and their livestock and to increase agricultural production ; and
2. to strengthen organization and management capacity at the institutional, technical and community levels.

The programme will benefit, either directly or indirectly, 6,000 pastoral households living in the regions of Tadjourah, Dikhil and Arta. The targeted communities are located in the Day Forest and its environs in Tadjourah, the Gobaad and As Eyla zones in Dikhil, and Petit Bara and Grand Bara in Arta. These mainly pastoral households rely on herding, non-agricultural income-generating activities (especially the sale of salt and charcoal) and remittances from relatives in urban areas. About a third of the households depend on food aid from the World Food Programme (WFP) in the form of general food distribution and food-for-work programmes.
