Community Management of Water and Land Resources in East Bayuda/ Balqa Governorate
Community Management of Water and Land Resources in East Bayuda/ Balqa Governorate
The project aims at assisting the local community of Bayuda, 15 Km to the north of Salt city, to implement small projects that would improve the living conditions of the community, contributing, at the same time, to the sound management and preservation of their natural resources, mainly water and soil resources.

The village is characterized by its agricultural nature, with plains grown with field crops such as wheat and barley, and steep lands where olives, grapes and other fruit trees are grown. Open landscape with some well-preserved beautiful old oak trees are scattered around the village, which is surrounded by mountainous forest areas that give special scenic features to the village and contribute to its moderate climate.

Activities to be implemented under the project include training of local community members, water harvesting through digging cisterns and construction of water reservoirs, bee-keeping and production of herbal plants. Support to the individual projects will be provided on a revolving loan basis, in order to insure sustainability of the project.

The project will also enable the NGO to become a member of the sgpforum which is the electronic forum connecting SGP supported NGOs for the purpose of exchanging experiences and lessons learned in sustainable development issues.
