Mauritania: Small-scale surface irrigation for food security

The majority of the population in Mauritania provides for themselves through traditional agriculture and livestock farming and are heavily dependent on the rainy seasons. As a result of unpredictable seasonal rains and climatic conditions, climate hazards (in particular periodic droughts), encroaching desertification and competition for resources, the majority of the population remains chronically vulnerable to food insecurity and malnutrition

In response, the Mauritanian Red Crescent, in cooperation with the Spanish Red Cross and with funding provided by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), has successfully implemented a project on small-scale surface irrigation for food security in Boghé.
