MAVA project accomplishments start to show up in Hima Anjar- Kfar Zabad IBA

MAVA FoundationThe project titled “Restoring Hima Ecosystem functions though promoting sustainable community -based water management systems” in the Anjar and Kfar Zabad IBA, supported by the MAVA foundation, has started to show success stories on the ground. The projects’ interventions started January 2013 with the farmers of Anjar and Kfar Zabad that included improving the water management irrigation systems and raising the capacities of farmers about sustainable irrigation practices in both sites. The field works also included the rehabilitation of around 1000m open-soil canal by SPNL and the municipality of Anjar aiming to minimize water loses. Furthermore, SPNL’s ornithologist Dr. Ghassan Ramadan-Jaradi has reported spotting Syrian Serin birds, thus indicating the improvement of the ecological conditions of the Hima- IBA.
