Local Community in the Management of Wadi Rajib Eco-system
In the north region of Jorda, in the beautiful area of Wadi Rajib, the Wadi Rajib Women Cooperative will implement the “Local Community in the Management of Wadi Rajib Eco-system” project. The area is characterized by its magnificent scenery and abundant water which helped to form its special eco-system rich with biodiversity and abundance of indigenous species of forest and fruit trees which are significant in terms of agro-biodiversity. The project aims at helping farmers and community members to take measures that conserve their lands and the quality of their agricultural products, propagating significant species of fruit trees which are indigenous in the area, such as figs, olives, pomegranates and grapes. It will also contribute to the community livelihood as a result of improved agricultural productivity and improved irrigation efficiency, in addition to supporting several small income generating activities, such as bee- keeping, poultry raising, horses for plowing and establishment of nurseries to propagate above mentioned trees.
