Dry Zone Livelihood Support and Partnership Programme

Dry Zone Livelihood Support and Partnership Programme

There is a high concentration of poverty in these arid districts, where many people have little or no land. The project enables poor rural people to improve their incomes and living conditions sustainably through increased access to land and water resources, services, technologies and market linkages.

The project benefits small-scale farmers and, particularly young households and households headed by women, in which there is a chronic shortage of productive members. The project design is flexible and can adapt to changing priorities as it goes forward. Participatory planning, a basic feature of activities, includes a participatory assessment of constraints in rainfed and irrigated farming, from production to marketing. In farmer field schools, participants develop solutions that they disseminate to individual farmers. Project activities, such as tank rehabilitation and infrastructure development, are demand-driven. Women have a voice in activities, particularly in the self-managed savings and credit schemes that enable them to improve their incomes and provide better food and care for their families.
