The Tigray Project in Ethiopia
The “Sustainable Development and Ecological Land Management with Farming Communities in Tigray (Tigray Project) was initiated by the Institute for Sustainable Development (ISD), the Bureau of Agriculture and Rural Development (BoARD), and Mekelle University in four villages of the Tigray Province in Northen Ethiopia in 1996. Within the Tigray project, farmers have used numbers of innovations and organic practices such as composting, crop diversification and improved water management to reverse the developments in an area formerly severely affected by problems such as overgrazing, soil erosion and depletion of water resources, which exacerbate rural poverty.
The Tigray Project is farmer-led and builds on the local technologies and knowledge of the farming communities.
