Not only has soil degradation in Niger been halted thanks to an integrated approach combining water harvesting technologies, the application of organic residues and planting of fruit trees and vegetables.

They have sought their own approaches by leveraging opportunities within traditional, religious, and formal systems standing for their rights.
