Community Movement for Rehabilitating Drying Springs of Yewol Mountain Watersheds at the heads of the Nile basin

Yewol watershed in South Wollo Zone, Amhara Regional State, Ethiopia is a drought-prone sub-district with occasional storms and rapidly changing climate. Farmers have recently abandoned the short rains, which used to produce about 30% of the food, due to unreliable and unpredictable rains. This project is designed to capitalize on the ongoing watershed initiative, which established multiple watershed management interventions and has created an institutional alliance between Wollo University, Amhara Agricultural Research Institute and the local governments.
