Integration of Local Community Needs & Conservation of Environmental and Agricultural Resources in al 'Eina and That Ras
That Ras Social Development Society in Al Mazar Al Janoubi/ Karak governorate south of Jordan will implement this project in Al ‘Eina area which constitutes a micro eco-system of special importance which has been subject to gradual degradation leading to a decrease in agricultural production of important agro-biodiversity special to the area, in turn leading to negative impacts on local community’s living situation.

Activities will include water harvesting and soil conservation measures in Al’Eina to upgrade the efficiency of using available water springs and rain water. Other components of the project will involve building the capacity of the NGO and the local community. Training and awareness activities will be conducted in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Faculty of Agriculture at Mu’tah University. The NGO will also use the revolving fund system to fund individual projects in order to broaden beneficiary base and insure sustainability.
