ONG - AGED
The objective of the project “Rehabilitation and sustainable management by AGED of degraded pastures in the Sahel region of Burkina Faso” is to reverse degradation of pastures and foster sustainable land management of the pastures in the Sahel region of Burkina Faso.
The project intervention consists of restoring degraded pastures in the Burkinabe Sahel in close collaboration with local rural communities by re-establishing structure, productivity and tree and grass species diversity originally present in order to enhance the productivity of the vegetation as pasture for the benefit of the pastoralists and agro-pastoralists. Sustainable land-use management of the pastures are promoted through the introduction of local land charters.
The project is located in the Sahel in the North of Burkina Faso. In the first stage of the project three villages in the province of Séno are involved with a total of 626 ha and in a later stage other villages in the provinces of Yalgo and Bani.
The target communities live in poverty, both in terms of income and resources, and they depend on subsistence and modest income-generating crop and livestock farming activities for their survival.
