Community water management improvement project for traditional farmers in Mkushi, Masaiti, and Chingola districts

Sunday, November 1, 2009
Project Status: 
Ongoing

November 2009 – Development Aid from People to People (DAPP), a local NGO, received a €700,000  grant to strengthen traditional farmers' ability to efficiently manage on-farm water resources for enhanced productivity and income generation, thus facilitating the transition from subsistence farming to a more efficient and commercially oriented mode of production. In doing so, the project also addresses the issue of vulnerability of smallholder families to climate variability, both reducing their dependency on rain-fed farming and increasing their resilience to climate change. The project will benefit small farmers of the Mkushi, Kapiri Mposhi, Masaiti, and Chingola districts.
