Nigeria – Scaling Up Sustainable Land Management Practice, Knowledge and Coordination Project

July 8, 2010

GEF Trust Fund Grant: US$6.8 million
Project ID: P109737
Project Description: The objective of the project is to increase the incomes of rural entrepreneurs in areas of irrigable land that are low lying flood plains underlined by shallow aquifers and found along Nigeria's river system (fadama). This will be achieved by delivering resources directly to the rural communities, efficiently and effectively, and empowering them to collectively decide on how resources are allocated and managed for their livelihood activities and to participate in the design and execution of their subprojects.
