Background

The Sustainable Land Management (SLM) project is a component within a framework that brings together different stakeholders to address key issues. The SLM project, strategically and incrementally, promotes and institutionalizes SLM practices through collaborative arrangements between the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) and the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) to deliver broader technical options to farmer groups. 

NARO and MAAIF are both implementing the SLM activities, many of which derive from sizeable body of analytical work and investment programming by the government and district local governments. The project promotes SLM information support, investment planning, and monitoring across the agricultural sector by strengthening the performance of MAAIF and NARO.

 Since 2010 when targeted SLM activities were started in earnest, people and communities have appreciated the need for land management and resources planning. Consequently, there has been a quantum leap in the area under SLM. The SLM practices and technologies have helped to reverse the negative trends of land degradation, especially soil erosion and declining soil fertility, leading to increased crop yields. Furthermore, the SLM practices and technologies have reduced the downside production risks, thus increasing resilience among communities amidst a changing climate. The outcome of all these is improved food, nutrition and income security among households.
