Community action for reclamation of Hulohwo & Kpakpata watershed in Abaji Area Council, FCT - Abuja
Hulohwo/Kpakpata River Basin is located across the Gurara River in Abaji Area Council of FCT. It is made up of a population of about 5,000 people while Alagba is about 1000 people. Farming is the main occupation with methods of bush burning, tree felling and slash and burn. The topography naturally slopes into River Hulohwo, an erosion challenge, deposition of sediments into the streams leading to eutrophication .To address these environmental challenges HTF has earmarked the following activities in this project; Oil Palm plantation (on 14 degraded hectares already donated by the community) to both mitigate land degradation and Climate change challenges. The Solar stoves training and construction (30) is to facilitate further reduction of firewood usage. 2 Culverts will provide bridges to connect to all other communities and check sediments which were earlier on used to form the bridges ,it also therefore act as pollutant control to the river Hulohwo . Fish farm of 3000 catfishes. Provide training for mind-set change and alternative method of fish without using gamalin. The 5 hand dug wells and water use trainings will check further abuse to stream water which earlier added to stream pollution. 10 girls will be trained as seamstresses and given 10 sewing machines at end of the training . Instructional attitude change trainings goes along all activities & will also be used to mitigate anti- environment practices. In a formal community/HTF meeting with the donation of the Land was officially presented with a written letter in the native language.
