Project Profile

Developing pathways to resilience through the sustainable management of water, land and ecosystems


Duration : January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017
(Extended to December 30, 2018)
Overview:

The project is supporting communities to sustainably manage water, land and ecosystems as a pathway to improved livelihoods, healthier families and increased resilience to shocks and stresses. The project is working in four watersheds: two in Ghana and two in Ethiopia. The centerpiece of the project is a series of participatory watershed-level workshops involving farmers, government planners and natural resource experts. The workshops were complemented by a set of background materials developed by the project to assess the biophysical and socioeconomic context of each watershed and to review the national policies on natural resources, water and resilience. The goal of the project is to facilitate the development of locally-owned action plans that build resilience through sustainable water, land and ecosystems management.
