Careful Management Despite High Population Density
The fertile, hilly highlands of Amhara in northern Ethiopia are densely settled and farmed. This project addresses the resulting problems using modern, soil-sensitive cultivation methods. For example, composting and greater crop diversity use resources more sustainably while improving nutrition. However, access to WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) is equally important, since even the best diet is useless if its benefits are lost due to diarrhoea caused by poor hygiene.
