Sun pump installations for vegetable farming – Cap Skirring

Senegal_web

In Cap Skirring, agriculture remains little developed compare to the high demand of the tourism sector for fruit and vegetables.

Implemented in this region since 2009, the project aims to develop agricultural VSBs to improve the local supply of fresh produce to the Club Med Village and local markets. Since then, around 170 families deliver more than 10 tons of a large variety of vegetables each year, for a turnover of more than € 10,000.

In 2014, in order to maintain these results, a project was initiated to install solar pumps in the gardens in order to guarantee access to safe and efficient irrigation water during the dry season.

agroecologie-lutte-deforestation-mozambique

Agroecology and fight against deforestation

The Miombo forest close to the National Reserve of Gilé (province of Zambezia) is imminently threatened by slash-and-cut farming.

Since 2014, in order to fight against the degradation of the forest, the project intends to bring about sustainable economic and social development in favour of the neighbouring populations. Thanks to an agricultural model based on the practices of agroecology, natural resources are protected and revenue is produced for the local families.

The project enables 8 communities to create their own group for the common management of the area’s natural resources. It also contributes to disseminate practices against deforestation and land degradation, as well as to establish local value-added production sectors.

All development actions take place in close cooperation with the local communities.
