Contexte
Embaderho and Adibidel are villages within Maekel Regional Administration. They are located within 30 km around Asmara, the capital. Maekel region landscape is on the highland plateau and lies within the range of 1,600 – 2,610 meters above sea level with annual rainfall range of 400-600mm. People’s livelihood depends on crops and livestock.
Dwellers of these villages have major land degradation challenges. Soil erosion during the rainy season is tremendous and thus flash floods form gullies in their farmlands. This reduces the size of existing farmland. Soil fertility is totally depleted and crop harvest is very poor.
People’s ability to grow enough to feed themselves is determined by the weather. Short or long term fluctuations in weather patterns can have extreme impact on agriculture production, slashing crop yield and forcing farmers to adopt new agricultural practices in response to altered conditions. Climate, therefore, has a direct impact on agriculture and thereby on food security.
Climate change over the long term could affect agriculture in a number of ways, the majority of which would threaten food security for vulnerable people.

Résumé du projet
The overall goal of this project is contribute to the rehabilitation of degraded land in the region and ensure improved and sustainable community livelihood through improving soil conditions and planting of temperate fruits.
This project is about Land Degradation Rehabilitation through Afforestation of Temperate Fruits and SWC activities. This will address land degradation problem with the introduction agro-forestry of temperate fruits. Feasible approaches of area closure and building the capacity of local actors will be conducted to better enhance livelihood options. This is 18 months project (January 2013 to June 2014) targeting a total population of 2,608 households or 11,735 people.
