Second Barani Area Development Project

Second Barani Area Development Project

This project focused on low-income farm groups in an area where rainfall is low, agricultural output limited and soils are poor. Population pressure has led to substantial deforestation and overgrazing. Erosion has made large tracts of land uncultivable. The goal of the project was to help farmers improve crop yields and raise living standards, to halt the exodus of the male population to cities and towns. Specifically, it worked to:

  • improve water retention of the soil
  • improve seed quality
  • combat pests and diseases
  • introduce more suitable crop varieties

The project had a positive impact on the environment by promoting the use of environmentally friendly measures for water and soil conservation. Activities were successful in raising agricultural productivity and milk yields, and in providing new income-generating opportunities for women.
