Upper-East Region Land Conservation and Smallholder Rehabilitation Project - Phase II

Upper East Region Land Conservation and Smallholder Rehabilitation Project-Phase II

The project builds on Phase I. It is designed to reduce rural poverty in a drought-prone area by empowering rural poor people to increase and stabilize their incomes while protecting the environment. It helps them improve their living conditions through the development of social infrastructures.

The second phase of the project focuses on:

  • building capacity of key district and subdistrict-level service providers in the use of demand-driven participatory approaches
  • continuing development of irrigation through construction of small dams and sinking of hand-dug wells
  • boosting productivity through training of farmers and demonstrations of new technologies
  • installing rural infrastructure to lighten women's burden and mitigate the health and environmental risks attached to small dams, such as malaria and water contamination

The project's components include:

  • developing crop and small ruminant production and fish farming
  • capacity-building both of support staff and of village women and men
  • improving rural infrastructure and road communications
  • supporting income-generating activities through credit and training
  • improving management and organization
