Many smallholder farmers in Mauritania are being hit very hard by the changing climate. To help them face climate shocks with resilience, we distribute food and cash, strengthen their animal health care skills and help them fight soil erosion.
In the Assaba region in the south of Mauritania, erosion threatens the livelihoods of rural communities. For agro-pastoralists and their livestock, soil and water quality are of vital importance. We support them to carry out restoration works and to manage the new infrastructure in a sustainable way.
