Creating a sustainable future

x of y

Through our partners, Africa Sand Dam Foundation, Excellent Development supports communities to create the conditions needed for a sustainable future.

sustainable_future_01

Time saved from collecting water can be invested in sustainable land management.

sustainable_future_09

This enables communities to grow more food in the face of climate change.

sustainable_future_05

Terracing the land vastly reduces soil erosion and increases the absorbtion of water near farms.

sustainable_future_03

Zero grazing protects crops, prevents land degradation and allows manure to be collected for use as fertiliser.

sustainable_future_04

Tree nurseries protect and nurture the growth of young trees before they are transplanted into nearby farms.

sustainable_future_06

Planting trees protects soil, reduces erosion and enables the land to absorb more water.

sustainable_future_08

Trees are an essential source of food, fodder, building materials and fuel.

sustainable_future_07

Seed banks provide security in unpredictable dryland climates.

Before working with Excellent Development I used to only plant maize and beans. Now I plant a variety of crops including sorghum, cow peas, pigeon peas, cassava and sweet potatoes.
