Sustainable land management in Ethiopia – phase 2


Sustainable land management in Ethiopia – phase 2



Technical support for implementation of bamboo for sustainable watershed management and livelihood improvement: An innovative approach to mitigate land degradation in Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, soil degradation has been the cause of declining yields, especially on fragile lands from which the poorest farmers attempt to extract a living. It has also affected the quantity and quality of the water supplies, destroying water catchments and watersheds. To address these issues, INBAR is providing technical assistance to guide and facilitate bamboo development and management components of the national Sustainable Land Management Programme – Phase II. INBAR is providing capacity building to address identified skill and capacity gaps, as well as overseeing the implementation, and monitoring and evaluating of the bamboo components of the programme.
