Challenge

Farmers are compelled by market forces to transition from growing the traditional staples of maize and sorghum. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, these staples are grown on 60% of agricultural land, yet account for only 15-20% of agricultural revenue. This condition creates enormous demand on fruit and N-fixing trees. Hiiran region Somalia is experiencing alarming levels of erosion, desertification, deforestation, flash floods, desert locust and vulnerability to climate change.

Solution

Land for nurseries is lent in-kind by the local farmers, universities, and cooperatives. Communities identified this project a priority during participatory meetings and determined the tree varieties in the campaign. Trees are monitored via GPS coordinates and maps are constructed and shared with partners. Farmers plant and maintain the trees, and are the sole beneficiaries of the income.

Long-Term Impact

Fruit and N-fixing trees planting launches the transformational change in rural Hiiran,Somalia, where majority of poverty is concentrated.The program &its partnerships also incorporate creating community-managed value-added enterprises of raw products,securing organic certification, installing irrigation infrastructure to maximize water efficiency,building local technical skills,seizing trade opportunities,strengthening cooperatives to manage sustainable agriculture,reinvest in human development
