Improved Natural Resource Management and Community Livelihood in Dogara
Improved Natural Resource Management and Community Livelihood in Dogara
The project will be implemented as part of a cluster of three projects in the north of Jordan, two in Irbid and one in Ajloun governorate with the aim to contribute to controlling land degradation and soil erosion, improving productivity of agricultural land and preserving environmental resources. The project activities include the introduction of soil conservation measures, water harvesting, using effective drip irrigation techniques, bee keeping, medicinal herb planting and processing, installation of solar cells for water heating and improvement of sanitary situation in the concerned villages. It is hoped that these projects would constitute models that encourage neighboring communities to adopt similar activities to serve their needs in line with their environmental and socio-economic contexts.
