Angola: Government launches drought, desertification projects
June 22, 2017
This is contained in a press release reached Angop on Tuesday, on the World Day to Combat Drought and Desertification, celebrated on Saturday and which referred to Cunene province.
According to the source, the southern Cunene province has been hit hardest by the Drought, affecting the social and economic condition of citizens, as well as the environment balance.
It has to do with the Land Rehabilitation and Pasture Management project in the agro-pastoral production systems of small producers in south-west region of Angola (RETESA).
The four-year project started in 2014 and covers areas of Namibe, Huíla and Benguela.
This also include the project called Integration of Climate Resilience in Agricultural and Pastoral Production Systems, underway since 2016, through the management of soil fertility in vulnerable areas using the Field Schools approach (IRCEA).
