Pastoral Water and Resource Management Project in Sahelian Areas

Pastoral Water and Resource Management Project in Sahelian Areas
 

The main aim of this project is to improve access to water for mobile pastoralists and their animals in search of grazing areas and water.

At present, Chad has abundant pastoral areas but people do not use them fully because there are too few water points. The project will set up an infrastructure of water points that will enable mobile pastoral communities to use more of the available pastoral land. This will help reduce their vulnerability and support the communities' way of life. Productivity will increase through reduced livestock mortality, morbidity and water stress as well as higher live weight and milk production.

The project will contribute to reduce conflicts over water by associating mobile herders and agricultural producers to the management of pastoral wells and livestock corridors through inclusive local institutions where traditional leaders of both communities sit.


Mobile pastoralism adapts well to low vegetation growth and to fragile ecosystems. This makes this system a sound response to Chad's continuously changing agricultural and ecological conditions.

People in mobile pastoral communities are among the most marginalized and vulnerable people in Chad.The project will focus particularly on women and young people in these groups and involve them in activities related to basic health, education and milk and meat processing. Animal health services will also be provided.
