Rehabilitation of Plant Cover surrounding As Salhiyeh Village- Wadi Rum
The project is implemented in As Salhiyeh village in Wadi Rum area, which is a special natural and touristic area of significant importance. The proejct aims at controlling the dust and sand dune formation over village dwellings, affecting the health, social and economic life of the community. This problem was caused by negative human practices including over-grazing, tree cutting and use of 4-wheel drive vehicles, in addition to climatic conditions. To address the problem, the Cooperative, in cooperation with the Wadi Rum Nature Area, will rehabilitate the area around the village by planting it with indigenous plants and establishing a nursery to propagate these plants to be grown on a large scale. The project will mobilize the local community and enhance its participation in the conservation efforts in the area. It will also build the capacities of the Cooperative to ensure sustainability of its efforts.
