Farmers' capacitation in Niger extended

Three more years of PromAP irrigation activities

2019-03/ After seven years of successful implementation Niger's "Small irrigation and agricultural extension" activities in the Tillabéri, Tahoua and Agadez regions now enter a third phase. The project's component "Capacity building for service providers in small irrigation" will be run by ECO in consortium with AFC and IRAM up until end 2021. PromAP (Promotion of Productive Agriculture) started in 2012, as the TC component of the bilateral programme "Support of Productive Farming in Niger", anchored with the Republic of Niger's Ministry of Planning. In tune with the country’s Rural Development Strategy ECO works to secure the environmental and socio-economic sustainability of small-scale irrigation. > More NEWS

Coming to grips with sustainability

Sincere action for development means integrated action

Sustainable development indispensably prerequires ecological integrity, economic viability and social equity. This notion underlies ECO's work as a company and is also reflected in our name. But trivial though this may appear 27 years after UNCED, sustainability remains hard to define – and even harder to apply — in practice. For instance, any attempt at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions from forest conversion will fail if we do not touch on land rights, productivity and equitable decision-making. Likewise, stakeholder platforms like the Global Landscapes Forum keep underpinning the need for coordinated, interdisciplinary and inclusive action.
