Soil, Water and Energy Management for Resilient Livelihoods

Project Food and income
Argobba -

In Ethiopia, agriculture is essential to the livelihoods of the rural inhabitants. During the planting and harvesting seasons, extreme weather can seriously harm agriculture. These occurrences have an impact on the production choices farmers make, such as how to allocate farm inputs.

Due to its tiny size and deteriorated cropland, Argobba frequently experiences food shortages. The local economy depends on cattle and staple crops, although it is limited by poor productivity and drought. Agriculture is the main source of revenue.

The integrated soil and natural resource initiative will use watershed-based soil and water conservation to increase output and lower drought risks. Additionally, this increases crop types and the availability of water for crop cultivation.

People That We Work With

The project targeted 18,784 beneficiaries in 12 communities.


The project’s goal is to increase food security and decrease vulnerability to the negative effects of climate change by integrating natural resource management practices with soil, crop, and livestock management.
