“Rural Women in the Management of Environmental Income-generating Projects in Semi-arid Areas in Southern Jordan”
“Rural Women in the Management of Environmental Income-generating Projects in Semi-arid Areas in Southern Jordan”
‘Ai Social Development Society will implement the “Rural Women in the Management of Environmental Income-generating Projects in Semi-arid Areas in Southern Jordan”. ‘Ai is a village of 8500 inhabitants located 15 Km south of Karak governorate. It is famous for its indigenous olives and grapes and other fruit trees. Over the past two decades, both agricultural and grazing lands in the area have been subject to deterioration and soil erosion as a result of draught and damaging agricultural practices, such as improper plowing and unorganized grazing. The project will support activities that aim at controlling land degradation and soil erosion through building the capacities of women, in particular, and the local community in general, in the field of implementing income-generating and other activities related to land and water resource management.

The project will contribute to creating new job opportunities in the area and improving family income through bee-keeping and medicinal plant production. It will also improve women’s skills and capacities in the management of environmentally sound income-generating activities, in addition to improving the NGO’s capacities in project management.
