Présentation
Poor rainwater management (RWM) and a resultant problems of land degradation, low agricultural productivity, food insecurity and poverty, are particularly severe in the rural highlands of Ethiopia. This study was undertaken at Andode/Meja micro watershed, which is located in the Jeldu district of west shoa zone in the Oromia region. The study was aimed to assess major problems and potentials for sustainable rainwater management for the improvement of rural livelihoods in the study area. Socioeconomic conditions, biophysical and their management practices were assessed in the watershed under study. Using GPS and GIS techniques, the existing RWM interventions, the extent, and the nature of changes in LULC were also assessed and mapped for reflecting both the biophysical conditions and their management status in the study watershed. Furthermore, soil laboratory analysis was done for soil samples collected from the upper 0 - 20 cm depth from land utilized for crop cultivation, grazing and natural forest/ eucalyptus plantation in order to compare the relative soil degradation with some selected physico-chemical properties of soil.
