Resilient Rural Livelihoods in Ecologically Fragile Drylands of the Sahel

Groundswell International has engaged in building the resilience of communities in the Sahel’s ecologically fragile dry lands, giving particular attention to women in more vulnerable households. The team helped small-scale farmers experiment with agro-ecological innovations to increase climate-resilient food production and dietary diversity in their communities, while also regenerating soils, trees and vegetative cover. By enhancing women’s access to credit, land and water, the team aimed to empower female farmers in the process. These efforts were brought to scale by fostering intensive ‘farmer-to-farmer’ learning and exchange between communities, linking up with district government development programs and fostering more effective nationwide policies and programs to build resilience.
