Community Based Sustainable Land Management in Issele-Azagba, Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The project is a poverty alleviation programme, aimed at not only increasing the number of small hold women farmers, but building their capacity, enhance their status and empower them to work together with men to maintain their environment and develop their community. It is an agrarian community blessed with rainfall for annual crop survival and has about 7,000 inhabitants, out of which 4,200 are women. Of this number 2,000 are small hold farmers who are very poor. It has good roads to her neighbours, Ubulu-Okiti, Okpanam, Ogwashi-Uku and Issele-Uku. It is made up of 5quarters – Ogbe-Utu, Ikem, Abualo, Ogbe-Iyase, Ogbe-Akpu and a farming settlement, Otulu. This rural community produce over 30% of the food sold to other towns, yet they remain poor because the land is threatened with loss of soil fertility, erosion and they do not have storage and the cost of transportation to city markets is very high. The project would develop, strengthen and sustain middle level agricultural manpower that would effectively combine improved indigenous skills and technology to increase food production, achieve ecology and economic improvement and healthy environment.
