‘ Address the adverse effects of land degradation towards livelihood development and enhanced food security ’

Representatives of the National Steering Committee (NSC) and Technical Advisory Group (TAG) along with Ms. Shireen Samarasuriya, National Coordinator GEF/SGP, visited Deltota on 28th March 2015.

During this visit they met a group of participants of Karagaskada and Piyasenapura villages.

It was a good opportunity for sharing the recent developments of the project and to get feed back for further improvements of the project.

Up to now over 50 families have been practising soil management methods on their lands according to the specific guidance given by the officials of the Department of Agriculture for each land. The men and women equally participated in applying soil conservation methods on their lands.
