Improvement of Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaigns in Al Wasiyeh and Ader Areas
Improvement of Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaigns in Al Wasiyeh and Ader Areas
The project is part of a 3-project cluster that will be implemented by community organizations in 3 neighboring villages in Karak governorates, south of the Kingdom. The projects aims at assisting local communities in the concerned areas to adapt to impacts of climate change including draught and subsequent land degradation, through improving community management of natural resources including water and soil in a way that contributes to sustaining those resources and improves the living conditions of those local communities. Activities to be supported by the projects include water harvesting through establishment of water storage reservoirs and rain-collection cisterns in addition to soil conservation measures and income generating activities such as bee-keeping, home gardens and medicinal plants.
The projects include an element of awareness raising for the farmers and local community members in the field of environmental issues affecting their areas and projects. They will also include an element of capacity building of implementing cooperatives, which will enable them to provide support to their local communities. The above cooperatives will use a revolving loan system in supporting their various activities so they can continue providing support to more projects that serve their local communities.
