Harnessing Floods to Enhance Livelihoods and Ecosystem Services, CGIAR WLE, involved as research partner (2015 – 2017)

This project sought to explore how FBFS interact with other functions provided by floods at various scales, especially how to optimize the use of floods for agriculture and ecosystem services to support livelihoods in different landscapes and socio-economic settings in Gash Area (Sudan) and Tigray Area (Ethiopia).  The aim was to improve investments in FBFS to ensure an equitable distribution of costs and benefits of the impacts of proposed interventions. The project also explored how investments in FBFS can best embrace gender and social equity.
