Landscape Restoration Brings Watershed to Life

[World Agroforestry Centre] Ethiopia is suffering from severe drought. But there is water in Gergera. Twenty years of restoring its hills and valley has brought life back to this area in the state of Tigray. The work has been painstaking, complex and multidimensional and continues to this day. But its hard won results offer up two key lessons.  First, landscape restoration in drylands hinges on water management. Second, restoration can create a base for better livelihoods and jobs for youth who formerly left in droves.Ministers
