Amhara Climate Resilience Campaign

In Amhara Region, Ethiopia, 1.5 million people were mobilized in the dry eastern woredas in June/July 2015 to work on the Climate Resilience campaign. Road water harvesting is part of this campaign, which aims at mitigating the detrimental effects of El Nino through water harvesting and watershed rehabilitation.

Manifold activities undertaken – here a pond upstream of the road to divert water that would otherwise damage the road and to and collect water for productive use.
