West Noubaria Rural Development Project

West Noubaria Rural Development Project

This project is working with small-scale farming households and unemployed youth who were dispossessed of their statutory tenancies in the oldlands and compensated with 1-ha or 2-ha holdings of reclaimed newlands. The project is helping them improve their housing and living conditions and adopt desert farming technologies that have been developed through Egypt's agricultural research system.

The project helps about 36,000 families by:

  • Supporting adoption of better on-farm water management practices
  • Encouraging development of small and medium enterprises in agricultural production and marketing
  • Providing marketing and extension information
  • Supporting development of a viable financial system and addressing the immediate need for financing of small and medium-sized enterprises.
