Jebel al Hoss Agricultural Development Project

Jebel al Hoss Agricultural Development Project

The project had the objective of opening up areas for agriculture by reclaiming barren, rocky land. The aim was to improve rural poor people’s incomes by giving them access to land, and to support them in establishing crops and livestock.

Some 22,000 ha of land were de-rocked, terrace cultivation was introduced, field crops were planted in rainfed areas and plantations of fruit trees were established in areas with supplementary irrigation. The project also supported livestock production, provided training in farming technology and promoted income-generating activities for women.
