Community Management of Natural Resources in Semi-arid Areas/ Ruwaim
The project iwll be implemented by the Ruwaim Charity Society in Ruwaim, Tafileh, where the Mediterranean arid to semi-arid eco-system prevails, and where consecutive draughty seasons have negatively affected water springs, leading to general deterioration of plant cover and drying up of several trees and home gardens. The project will involve the local community in several interventions that would contribute to addressing the problem. Those interventions would include collecting rainwater from rooftops and using domestic gray water for irrigation purposes, constructing stone terraces to conserve the soil and planting indigenous fruit trees and cleaning water channels and water spring outlets.
