Afghanistan

Titre : Rehabilitation of degraded land and livelihood improvement by planting indigenous wild Almond and Wild Cherry species in Waras, Bamyan (Afghanistan)

Pays : Afghanistan

N° projet  : AFG/SGP/OP4/Y3/RAF/14/20 (May 06, 2014)

Durée : Start Date : 6/2014 ; End Date : 6/2016

Contexte
Biodiversity of the area is seriously affected by soil erosion, drought and de-vegetation in the mountains and highlands of the area. Normally, communities cut bush and trees located on upper watershed zones and mountains, to meet firewood demand. De-vegetation leads to increased runoff, and in the process also reduces soil fertility.

Résumé du projet
The project seeks to intervene by way of plantation of wild indigenous almond species and other bushes. This will protect top soil and increase green cover. It will also provide safe habitat to local biodiversity and recharge groundwater levels. Soil conservation shall ensure higher productivity. Finally, it will improve the local microclimate.
The project seeks to engage local community development councils and natural resources management coucils by raising their awareness on forestry management.
