MAVA Project Intervention in Anjar Contributes to Water Management
As a part of the project titled “Restoring Hima Ecosystem functions through promoting sustainable community -based water management systems which is implemented by SPNL in Hima Anjar- Kfar Zabad through a support by the MAVA foundation, the implementation of sustainable water management approaches in Anjar has been initiated in Anjar agricultural lands. The project aims to manage the over use of water practiced by farmers through the gravity open canal irrigation system, where furrow irrigation was adopted on a demonstration site owned by the Water Users Association. This demonstration aims to assess the effectiveness of the furrow irrigation approach on the management of flood irrigation practiced in this site. The following approach is expected to reduce the time of irrigation by 60%, which is anticipated to reduce the water usage by 60% too.
