Project description The objective of the project “Rehabilitation and sustainable management by AGED of degraded pastures in the Sahel region of Burkina Faso” is to reverse degradation of pastures and foster sustainable land management of the pastures in the Sahel region of Burkina Faso. The project is part of a larger program BKF/017 “Livestock Improvement Project of the Zebu Azawak and sustainable management of pastoral resources” implemented by the Ministry in charge of Animal Resources in Burkina Faso with finance from Lux Dev aiming to rehabilitate a total pasture surface of 7250 hectares. The NGO AGED together with another NGO, REACH Italia, are involved in the implementation of the BKF/017 program. In order to enhance the sustainability of the project’s impact in the longer term at the end of the BKF/017 program, a Plan Vivo project has been formulated for each of the NGO’s REACH Italia and AGED. Both Plan Vivo projects will include the communities with which each NGO collaborated within the framework of the BKF/017 program. Natural rehabilitation of degraded pastures will include working with communities to identify and demarcate community pasture areas and the direct seeding of naturalized tree, shrub and herbaceous species.
