Dry-land Challenges in northern Nigeria
A Peacemaking Project by Idris A.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Government has failed to develop a strategy that addresses the challenges pursed by dry-land in northern Nigeria which is one if not the major reason for frequent clashes between farmers & herders in the region. Dry-land has also discourage irrigation farming thereby hindering participation of a majority of local farmers men & women from involving in small agric businesses that could improve their lives and income during dry season. Furthermore, domestic & wild animals including remote communities surfers lack of drinking water which sometimes led to death of the animals as a result of dry-land challenges in the region.
