NIGERIA’S NEWMAP PROJECT SHINES NEW HOPE

NIGERIA’S NEWMAP PROJECT SHINES NEW HOPE
16 FEBRUARY 2015

Southern Nigeria is affected by massive and expanding gully erosion, an advanced form of land degradation. The root causes of gully erosion are complex and climate change amplifies the challenge.

The Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) is breaking new ground by mobilizing funding, technical assistance, and local expertise to tackle a pressing problem. The New Hope film was shown at the BRICKS Communication Workshop, March 16 2015, as a great example of SAWAP project communication practice.
