A sustainable Land and Water Management Project is to be implemented in the three regions of the North, to reverse land degradation and enhance agricultural productivity.

The Principal Programme Officer of the Environmental Protection Agency, Isaac Acquah announced this during a consultation forum in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region.


He said the project will focus on the sub-watersheds of major tributaries of the Volta, flowing into the country from Burkina-Faso.

Mr. Acquah said at the end of the project, it is expected that there will be a positive impact on soil fertility improvement with lower dependence on chemical inputs.

It will also improve maintenance of irrigation schemes and regulate stream flow.

The Regional Minister, Mark Woyongo expressed the hope that the project will help reverse the extreme form of land degradation which has resulted in the high level of poverty in the Community.

He said as part of measures to prevent desertification, MMDA’s have been tasked to plant trees, which will offer employment to the people.

Mr. Woyongo reminded the assemblies of their requirements under the Local Government Law 1993, Act 462 to ensure the development, improvement and management of human settlements and the
environment.

He therefore urged them to adhere strictly to the Law.
