Japanese Embassy Supports Water management project in Hima Kfar Zabad

Through the generous support of the Japanese Embassy “Grass Roots’’ fund, SPNL has recently signed a new project with the Embassy of Japan titled “Water Rehabilitation and Management at Hima Kfar Zabad Wetlands and Springs “.

The following project aims to support health conditions and the livelihoods status of the Kfar Zabad local community, including the surrounding 30 villages who benefit from the spring and wetlands. It aims to undermine the heavy pressure from human practices on Hima Kfar Zabad wetlands and springs, including the. negative pressures caused from intense dumping of garbage, disposed solid and liquid wastes and mis-use and overuse of agrochemicals.

 

The implemented project activities will contribute to:1) The rehabilitation of Maasaya Pools 2) The rehabilitation of channel between pools of Hima Anjar and Hima Kfar Zabad. 3) Control the water distribution and usage inside and on the entries of the Hima. 4) The creation of drinking tap by Massaya spring.

 

The following project started to contribute to an improvement in the water management quality and quantity in Hima Kfar Zabad wetlands and springs which will not only affect the livelihoods of the surrounding farmers, locals and villages, but also to the improvement of the wetland ecosystem and biodiversity.
