Program Summary

This project establishes Innovation Groups (IGs) that work together in the mountainous township of Tedim in Chin State to determine the causes of soil erosion and fertility loss, and to identify and test potential solutions that they might be interested in adopting. After identifying potential solutions to prevent soil erosion and fertility loss, IGs apply the solutions and monitor the results over the course of the growing season. At the end of each season they assess the results, successes, and challenges, and are encouraged to adapt and improve on the solutions in the coming year.
