Raising Productivity While Saving Resources
Welthungerhilfe has joined two other international organisations in a major consortium to deliver a rural development project in northern Burundi, with responsibility for food security. The focus is on the basics of nutrition—access, availability, quality, and stability—to empower the extremely impoverished population to become more resilient and overcome climate change. Farmers are taught how to increase their crop yields without further depleting the soil. They also learn methods for limiting erosion and deforestation - essential for their survival.
