PROJECT SUMMARY: 
The Rusuli Marshland Development Project is an eco-friendly, community-led approach that aims to balance the socio-economic and ecological functions of the marshlands. The project is building drainage-irrigation infrastructure, protecting the sub-catchment area and providing training and coaching to farmers and farmer groups.

This project will protect 770 hectares against erosion including 120 hectares of protected and developed marshland and 650 hectares of protected hillside. By the end of the Rusuli project, 30 km of water channels, 13 km of access roads, 85 bridges and 4 rice drying platforms will be constructed.

The Rusuli Marshland Development Project is being implemented by Welthungerhilfe.
