Livelihood Support

Hay Planting

The overall objective of our livelihood support programs is to contribute to the creation of sustainable livelihoods and diminish the possible stresses created by climate change in the project area.

In light of the particularly adverse effects that droughts may have on pastoralist communities, ILEPA initiated a hay planting program to minimize the effects of climate change on pastoral livelihoods. By planting, harvesting and drying grass to turn it into hay, communities can store it to feed cattle in times of droughts.
