Country Impact

SGP Impact in figures:

  • (4) barley types, locally known as, Senef Kolo, Temejz, Nech Gebis and Tikur Gebis that were almost extinct are now being multiplied by the local farmers for use and/or sale.

  • More than 3,000 ha of land was enclosed and rehabilitated.

SGP Policy Influence:

  • As a result of the good work that SGP is doing, the government allocated part of its RAF and STAR resources to SGP. This indicates that the working relationship between the CSOs and the government is smooth. Out of the 57 CBOs SGP-Ethiopia is supporting, 50 of them were established as a result of SGP's intervention opportunity.

Replication and Up Scaling:

  • The Solar and Compost preparation projects in the Amhara region were well acknowledged by the local administration and being replicated in other communities.
