“As we were coming here, we saw it for ourselves that soil erosion is a big problem in this area, hence the need for future interventions. As such, because of the extent of the degradation, the rehabilitation works have been implemented in a progressive way.The Government is committed to helping communities effectively respond to the environmental and climate change challenges facing the country.When one looks at the grant amount and the work done, it is very pleasing to the heart. This is a real case of a project that demonstrates value for money.
