LUSIP-GEF Sustainable Land Management Project

'Sustainable Land Management is a knowledge based procedure that integrates, water, biodiversity and environmental management to meet rising food and fiber demands while sustaining livelihoods and the environment' (World Bank 2008)

back forth

The LUSIP-GEF Sustainable Land management Project is an initiative aimed at catalyzing rural development through the engine of sustainable agriculture to bring local, national and global environmental benefits. Land neighboring the LUSIP-GEF project area, on the south side of the Usuthu River, is undergoing major agricultural development. It is being transformed from impoverished subsistence rangeland and rain-fed arable cropping systems into an area of irrigated commercial cropping (LUSIP). The LUSIP- GEF SLM project will contribute to the LUSIP’s goal of "Reduction of poverty and sustained improvement in the standard of living of the population of the project area through commercialization and intensification of agriculture".

The project will ensure that sustainable land management practices are promoted – restoring resilient, integration agro-ecosystems in the currently highly degraded Lowveld, which is suffering the adverse effects of climate change, loss of agro ecosystem and biodiversity functions, invasion of alien plant species and dramatic decline in agriculture production.

GOAL

To reduce land degradation, biodiversity loss and mitigation climate change through the application of sustainable land management practices which will contribute towards mitigation of climate change and adaptation to climate change impacts, improved livelihoods and food security of 11 chiefdoms located in the Lower Usuthu Basin area.

The main objectives of the project are:
