Feras M. Ziadat, Wondimu Bayu, Birru Yitaferu, Theib Oweis, Andreas Klik, Fawzi Karajeh, Yigezu Yigezu. (26/9/2013). An overview of a watershedbased research to mitigate land degradation & improve livelihoods: A case from the Gumara-Maksegnit watershed, North Gondar, Ethiopia.
Ethiopia has great agricultural potential as it has vast area of fertile land, diverse climate, sufficient annual rainfall, & abundant labor force. However, the current performance of agric. is far below the potential, partly due to soil erosion & land degradation, lack of using improved technologies, lack of supportive services, poor socioeconomic infrastructure, & many more interrelated socioeconomic factors. Consequently, food insecurity & poverty have remained common features in the rural community. However, given the great natural resources endowment there is immense possibility to improve agricultural productivity & livelihood of the people by unlocking the potential of the rainfed agricultural system through integrated watershed development approach.
