Project Description

This pilot project aims at using sustainable mixed agriculture in the designated area of East Darfur villages and internally displaced persons (IDP) camps to reduce poverty and address potential renewal of conflict over natural resources. The dominant tribes in this region are the Rezeigat, the Ma’aliya, the Birgid , the Bertie and the Zaghawa. Historically, tribal conflict in East Darfur existed before the start of the Darfur conflict in 2003. The main tribal conflict was between the Ma’aliya and Rezeigat tribes dating back to the 1960s.

The five communities live side by side nearby each other have an average population of 2000, including 200 families in each village.  Nonetheless, the difference is huge in terms of the socioeconomic situation, loaded with discriminative actions which suggest a potential conflict indicated by emerging limited clashes among them.  In addition, there are longstanding tensions among different community groups in East Darfur between nomadic herders and sedentary farming communities, usually over land ownership and use of resources.

Agriculture is one of the main livelihood activities in East Darfur state along with livestock rearing and trading.  The development of sustainable agricultural production in this region can contribute significantly to peacebuilding by youth employment and raising incomes, thereby reducing the social frustrations that give rise to violence and supports social and political strategies for peacebuilding and peaceful coexistence.
