Enhancing Water Use Efficiency and Improving the Soil and Local Environment at Al-Amer Villages
Enhancing Water Use Efficiency and Improving the Soil and Local Environment at Al-Amer Villages
The project is implemented in Al Amer Villages in Al Mujib District, designed to enhance water use efficiency and improve the soil and local environment at Al-Amer Villages, for the ultimate goal of promoting sustainable land management practices in a fragile semi-arid eco-system of the Mediterranean. The project will promote water harvesting that will enhance efficiency of rain-water use and increase storage capacity at the household level for the purpose of providing irrigation, improving land productivity and providing additional water for domestic use. It will also support small-size income-generating activities including bee-keeping, home gardens and livestock projects. The project also includes a capacity-building component that will provide training for the NGO and community members in the various project management issues including the technical, financial and administrative aspects.
