Community Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaign in Gumeim & Gum- north Jordan
Community Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaign in Gumeim & Gum- north Jordan
The project is part of a 3-project cluster that will be implemented by women cooperatives in three villages in the north of the country. The projects aim to contribute to controlling land degradation and soil erosion, improving productivity of agricultural land and preserving environmental resources. Project activities include the introduction of soil conservation measures, water harvesting, using effective drip irrigation techniques, bee keeping, medicinal herb planting and processing and installation of solar cells for water heating. 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. 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.
