In specific terms, through integrated watershed management of small watersheds, aim to ① reduce the amount of soil erosion, ② improve soil productivity, and ③ raise the incomes levels of farmers. Formulate the initiatives and techniques (SLM approach) for the individual elemental technology (SLM technology) that is developed, and after the project completion, aim to deploy it in the Blue Nile upriver region and arid lands all over the world.
