Regreening Africa is promoting sustainable land management, particularly, Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration and other suitable agroforestry practices in arid and semi-arid areas.

A suite of practices that are contextually appropriate are being deployed in conjunction with communities, ensuring that the communities benefit economically through strengthened tree-based value chains.


Regreening targets

12, 890 hectares
19, 857 households


Somaliland: Dweyne and Awdac districts

Puntland: Sanaag, Karkar and Bari districts


Somaliland: World Vision Somalia

Puntland: CARE Somalia

World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF)

Approaches to reversing land degradation

  • Community dialogues
  • Demonstration plots and farmer-to-farmer visits
  • Training agricultural extension agents in land restoration
  • High-quality tree planting material available for communities
  • Strengthening community-based producer and marketing groups for priority tree-based value chains
  • Facilitate ‘xeer’ (customary laws and practices) revitalization for common pool resource management

Project sites

The project will target Odweyne and Baki districts, which are largely agro-pastoral with the majority of farmers rearing camel, goats and sheep which all depend on pasture.

Expected impact

  • Increased income, food security and resilience among pastoralists and agro-pastoral communities
  • Reversed land degradation, improved forage and robust rangeland value chains
  • Diversified sources of household nutrition and incomes from livestock and natural products
