Western Sudan Resources Management Programme

Western Sudan Resources Management Programme

Extremely poor small-scale farmers and herders. Families have a limited food and water supply and no sources of income other than what they earn through herding and farming.

Long-term objective of the programme is to build up traditional rainfed agriculture and improve economic conditions in communities in the three Kordofan states. The programme focuses on the importance of appropriate natural resource management in resolving land and water-based conflicts. Establishing land rights for herders and for traditional and mechanized farming, improving access to water, and providing or strengthening basic infrastructure are essential elements of the programme. In the poorest areas the programme will invest in livestock restocking, vocational training and introduction of alternative income-generating enterprises. Overall, the programme will work towards strengthening community organization, particularly by involving rural women.
