Tihama Environment Protection Project

Tihama Environment Protection Project

This IFAD-initiated project supported the expansion of the Tihama Development Authority’s (TDA) work to protect the environment and provide assistance to enable poor farmers to develop sustainable farming in the Red Sea coastal plain. Activities included:

  • conserving the land by controlling the encroachment of sand dunes onto productive lands and planning dune stabilization
  • conserving water, particularly by encouraging farmers to increase productivity by increasing efficient water use
  • supporting rural women by introducing training in literacy, health and nutrition, and by providing extension and veterinary services, as well as credit to enable women to increase the productivity of their livestock
  • strengthening TDA’s management capability
