Nigeria - Second National Fadama Development Critical Ecosystem Management Project (English)

The objective of Second National Fadama Development Project for Nigeria is to sustainably increase the incomes of fadama users, those who depend directly or indirectly on fadama resources (fanners, pastoralists, fishers, hunters, gatherers, and service providers), through empowering communities to take charge of their own development agenda, and by reducing conflict between fadama users. The project has the following components: (1) The aim of this component is to build the capacity of fadama users and other key stakeholders. (2) This component addresses the technical, social and location-specific activities to improve the management of critical watersheds that ensure fadama productivity and sustainability in a few (pilot) areas with high potential for upscaling and replicability. (3) This component supports a range of advisory services, training, information sharing, awareness programs, and adoption of land use practices that will enable fadama users to adopt productivity-enhancing techniques and more profitable marketing, and at the same time ensure the sustainability of the fadama resource base. (4) This component focuses on project management mechanisms, including monitoring and evaluation plans to implement Fadama II.
