Acacias for all

Acacias for All is changing the agricultural sector in the Arab Maghreb sub-region by introducing a new holistic farming approach to fight desertification. Its approach shifts the focus of the sector towards alternative, natural, plant based irrigation complemented by crops that fit the local context; in addition, it creates a change movement through which farmers adopt new and sustainable farming techniques and organize themselves into cooperatives, in order to manage the entire new farming cycle.

Question for the innovator

Hi, I would like to initiate the same idea in the post-conflict Somalia where the environment has been totally degraded throughout the civil war era that engulfed the country since 1991.
Your feedback and suggestion is highly welcomed.
