GR4W as a post COVID-19 Recovery of Livelihoods Resilence

Green Roads for Water can support the affected communities to recover from the pandemic shock and rebuild their livelihoods and access to food. This is because, green roads, firstly create new sources of water wherever roads are built or maintained which can be used for irrigation and thus increase the agricultural productivity and consequently the food supplies. And secondly, when green roads are built into social safety net and recovery programs, they create employment as well as better rural roads, which can increase the income of the affected households and also improve their access to markets and services.

More details on how GR4W can be used as a rehabilitation strategy for rural communities to recover from COVID-19 are available in English and Arabic.
