VLIR-UOS Community Talk: Integrated watershed management - Best practices for working with the community from Arba Minch, Ethiopia



Land is the only resource that smallholder farmers (more than 80% of the country’s population) have for their livelihood strategy in the Arba Minch region. This crucial resource is exposed to erosion and land degradation due to unsustainable farming practices, deforestation and population pressure.

The consequences are visible throughout the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the dynamics of their deterioration need to be halted to make a sustainable development of the area possible.


In this community talk key strategies from the IUC project with Arba Minch University will be shared, with a focus on the collaboration with local government actors and smallholder farmers themselves.

With Dr. Fassil Eshetu Teffera (Arba Minch University) and Dr. Seyoum Getaneh (Arba Minch University)
