Description

The Freddas three years project (from 2012 to 2015) is closely related to Senegal’s submission of Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP 2003-2005 and 2006-2010). Great importance is placed on the importance of access to water as a priority in the fight against inequality.The project focuses on the planning and management of water resources, ensuring that such efforts are based on established guidelines, rules of conduct and best practices of participatory processes, without gender discrimination. GCIt apply this project model in the Gouriki Samba Diom (Matam Region) and Bokhol (Saint Louis Region) villages, two rural areas that have long based their economy on an extensive and poorly mechanized agricultural system. In these areas, Green Cross will recover 60 hectares of wasteland for cultivation,complementing local food security and bringing economic benefits to agricultural workers. Solar panels covering 500 square meters will be installed, capable of producing 250,000 kw of electricity per year, and allowing farmers to reduce reliance on diesel-powered water pumps, in turn bringing about a 35% reduction in total production costs, and potential zero CO2 emissions. New irrigation systems “Drop by drop” will be employed and divided into main pipelines and peripheral devices, using approximately720 kilometers of pipes;480 kilometers of pipe in the Gouriki Samba Diom village and 240 in the Bokhol village. The objective is to minimize water and energy consumption in these areas, as well as producing better crops and more over this system will greatly reduce water consumption of the Senegal River, saving more than 800 million liters of water each year. To promote the role of women in Senegalese society, Green Cross Italy will give leadership roles to women to oversee aspects of the project’s implementation, as well as insisting that over half of the more than 900 direct beneficiaries of the Freddas project be women. read more close
