Soil and Water Management Programme
The overall objective of the Soil and Water Management Programme (PROGRES) is to contribute to sustainably improving living conditions and reducing poverty among rural communities in the programme area.
The development objective is to sustainably improve rural households’ access to water and local resources, and resilience to climate change. The programme investments and activities will be implemented in two technical components, in addition to a coordination and M&E component.
PROGRES responds to a request for financing from the Government to scale up the Programme for the Mobilization of Surface Water and Sustainable Land Management (PROMES-GDT) completed in December 2014. The programme’s raison d'être is therefore to scale up best practices in mobilizing surface water and managing environmental and climate change risks by: (i) expanding and adding to the network of hydraulic structures and regeneration of plant cover; (ii) promoting exchanges and social organization around improving rural living conditions; and (iii) developing innovative activities to raise pastureland productivity.
