Integration of Improved Local Agriculture and Nature Conservation in Arjan
Integration of Improved Local Agriculture and Nature Conservation in Arjan
In Ajloun governorate and along the Wadi Rayan area, known for its beauty and rich agro-biodiversity, where indigenous species of figs, pomegranates and olives have been grown over hundreds of years, the Arjan Cooperative will implement this project which aims at improving the quality of local agricultural production and integrating it with nature conservation and sustainable development efforts in the area. This will be achieved through supporting farmers to construct rain-collection wells and water storage reservoirs to enable them to irrigate their trees during the summer and improve the conditions of their farms and products. The project will also develop the concept of local agricultural products, improve, promote and market such products in coordination with the Ajloun reserve, especially the ecotourism project at the reserve.
