Restoring degraded land for sustainable livelihoods and ecological sustainability in Gindiringok, Binga and Millet, in Mangu Local Government Area, Plateau State, Nigeria
Restoring degraded land for sustainable livelihoods and ecological sustainability in Gindiringok, Binga and Millet, in Mangu Local Government Area, Plateau State, Nigeria
Gindiringok, Millet and Bungha communities are located in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State Nigeria.
These are agrarian in nature and lack basic social infrastructural facilities. The 2006 census put the population of the communities at about 7000 people.
Their major occupation subsistence rain fed farming, dry season farming. They also engage in hunting of small animals. The women also engage in petty trading of vegetables and other agriculture produce.
Soil erosion, and activities such as overgrazing and bush burning, and continuous use of fertilizers here, as well as deforestation, has led to the continuous decline in the yield property of the lands.
Areas which were perennials have been converted to arable fields with bush burning that few trees are left in the area.
Climate change and the resultant change in rainfall patterns has also contributed to further degrade the lands.
- The goal of this project is to turn these communities; Gindiringok, Bunga, and Millet into model of the restoration of, and preservation of agricultural lands through the adaptation of the global response to impact of climate change. This will be done through the following activities: Project inception meeting formation of project
- Workshop and sensitization on climate change
- Site preparations, and pooling of materials and relevant training resources
- Training on land degradation and its causes
- To proffer solutions to the declining farming outputs and promote climate smart agricultural practices in the project location.
