Community Livelihood and Improved Land Resource Management
Community Livelihood and Improved Land Resource Management
In an open semi-elevated area and widespread plains, Manshiyet Abu Hammour village/ Kerak governorate is situated in a fragile semi-arid area of the Mediterranean eco-system where modest rainfall, over-grazing and poor natural resource management practices prevail. Furthermore, the village youth suffer from un-employment that aggravates the poor economic situation of the population. To address this situation, Al Manshiyeh Women Cooperative will implement the “Community Livelihood and Improved Land Resource Management in Manshiyet Abu Hammour” project. The project will assist local community members, mainly women, to implement several income-generating activities that contribute to the sound management of natural resources, at the same time improve their living conditions. The activities to be supported include cistern construction, bee-keeping, food processing as well as solar cells for water heating at homes. Project activities will be technically supported by the Watershed Management Project. Awareness activities and documentation will also be conducted to ensure dissemination of lessons learned and replication of project by other communities.
