    Though only at its mid-term, the project has been successful in policy influence, securing funding which for the first time will be used for forest and pastoral plantations on farmers’ land, without expropriating them, and thus assuring joint responsibility for proper management. New models put forward by the project combine preservation measures with intensive irrigated fodder production, and development of complementary income-generating activities involving olive and fruit-tree plantations.

    Tunisie, Afrique septentrionale

    An innovative, low-cost methodology was developed to assess the potential of sites in Tunisia for supplemental irrigation and water harvesting.

    Forests, trees and woodlands cover almost one-third of the Earth’s land area. They are a crucial source of food and income for more than a billion people around the globe. They provide a variety of wood and non-wood products and vital ecosystem services – preventing erosion from wind and water, preserving water quality, shading crops and livestock, absorbing carbon which contributes to countering climate change, and providing habitat for many species of plants and animals, thus helping to conserve the planet’s biological diversity.

    Soudan, Afrique sub-saharienne

    Livelihoods in Darfur are intimately linked to the conflict. This document considers the livelihoods of the Northern Rizaygat, a group of Arabic-speaking, camel-herding nomads living in the Sudanese states of North, South, and West Darfur. The Northern Rizaygat have achieved notoriety for their role in the Janjaweed, the loose groupings of armed Arab tribesmen, who, since 2003, have been integral players in Darfur’s conflict and instrumental to the Sudanese government’s counterinsurgency campaign.
