This IFAD-initiated project helps farmers combat land degradation and restore soil fertility, paving the way for sustainable use of land and water resources. The project supports almost 3,000 poor farming households by:

  • providing technical and financial support to promote soil and water conservation measures and improve agricultural production
  • providing and funding credit for on-farm and off-farm enterprises
  • strengthening the capacity of agricultural institutions to provide the required technical support and extension services

In addition, income-generating programmes are being created to assist about 800 women develop small-scale business enterprises.
