The project will enable the NGO to run a revolving fund which will provide funding through full pay back loaning system to local community members to undertake several measures that will contribute to soil conservation measures and sustainable land use practices in an arid to semi-arid eco-system south of Jordan. Measures include soil terraces, stone tree basins, under-cropping systems, construction of rain collecting cisterns and other activites. The project will contain a training component as well as an outreach program. The NGO had successfully implemented a first operational phase project dealing with similar activities and received great demand from the local community to continue with those activities.
