Addis Ababa, 5 February 2014 (WIC) – Natural resource conservation activities are underway in 37 woredas of North Shoa zone, Amhara Regional State, according to zonal administrator.

The administrator, Eshete Assfaw, told WIC that more than 600,000 farmers are taking part at the 60-day conservation activities.

The farmers participating at the conservation activities being held for the fourth consecutive years are expected to contribute labor worth one million birr, he said.

According to Eshete, similar natural conservation activities carried out in the zone during the past years enabled farmers to harvest three times per year.

The ongoing natural conservation works will also improve productivity of farmers as it directly linked with their irrigation development activities, he noted.

Some 62,000 hectares of land was developed through irrigation last budget year and the development of 72, 500 hectares of land is also underway this budget year, he said.
