Improving Organic Resource use in rural Ethiopia (IPORE)

Duration : June 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017
(Extended to October 31, 2017)

The shortage of organic resources in southern Ethiopia for improving long term energy, food and water provision is one of the greatest challenges. This project will increase our understanding of the interactions between food, energy and water associated with organic resource use in this specific geographical and social context, and will help identify appropriate locally adapted solutions to improve community sustainability and resilience.
