Résumé
DryDev’s Ethiopia project provides relevant and contextually appropriate support to smallholder farmers residing in semi-arid dryland areas. The project aims to help households in such areas transition from subsistence farming and emergency aid to sustainable rural development. It aims to do this by increasing food and water security, enhancing market access, and strengthening the local economy.

Contexte
Agriculture is the dominant livelihood in Ethiopia’s drylands - agro-ecological zones that include both arid and semi-arid areas. Farmers are forced to cope with scarce and highly variable rainfall, eking out subsistence‐based livelihoods on largely infertile soils.

Objectifs
-* Strengthen subcatchment‐level natural resource management * Improve on-farm water and soil management * Promote agricultural commodity production * Enhance farmers’ market access * Improve links between farmers and financial services providers * Strengthen local governance and institutions * Monitor impacts and spread lessons to other areas * Identify and engage in policy processes to address specific constraints that farmers face
