Présentation
Belet Weyne district floods in May 2010 destroyed farmland. SAMRADO Assessment Report, in Belet Weyne, about 5,940 people were in AFLC and about 12,060 people were in HE. The riverine communities’ livelihoods depend on crops that were failed. The prices of the stable food such as cowpeas and local cereals of Maize and Sorghum increased. SAMRADO is proposing to conduct three months Flood and drought response project to address three major needs. First, the project will meet seed distribution. It will help the communities to increasing crop production and improving the existing community asset base.
The activities that are proposed to tackle and address the priority needs are : Distribution of seeds -10kg of maize, 4 Kg of cowpea, 6 kg of sesame per family. The targeted beneficiaries are families who are not able to purchase the essential seeds due to high prices and lack of income. The requested seeds will plant 5,860Ha, Maize, 1,660 Ha, Cow pea 1,200Ha and Sesame 3,000Ha, 3,000 families will benefit by the project.
