Amhara Drought Resilience Program

There is high concern that the coming El Nino will cause drought in the eastern part of Amhara state. A crash drought resilience program has been initiated involving the mass mobilization of 2 million persons. Road water harvesting is one of the main components in the campaign. Because of the higher rainfall in Amhara several new techniques are used such as uphill water harvesting ponds and infiltration ditches perpendicular to the road.
