3 Restoration of Degraded Rangeland The project with full participation of the local communities in Herat, Ghor and Badghis Provinces rehabilitated 159 hectares of degraded rangeland, for the benefit of livestock raisers. The lesson learnt is that when you mobilize the community and provide adequate training. The community takes the ownership of the intervention. This was evident when the local community provided voluntary labor in the restoration intervention. For this intervention to be repeated elsewhere, the local communities need only some modest financial and technical support.

4 Pistachio and Fruit Gardens The pistachio farmers of Badghis province, with the help of the project, established 557 new pistachio gardens. The project provided saplings, simple tools, and extension services. With the help of the project, 520 farmers in Ghor Province established their own new fruit gardens. The project provided farmers with saplings, training, and extension services, as well as with follow up and monitoring. And produced and planted about saplings to help establish 199 new pistachio gardens in Badghis Province.

The project provided tool kits of simple gardening tools, vegetable seeds, and training and follow up. Several women who were not part of the initial beneficiaries have copied the experience and established their own kitchen gardens. The interest this intervention received, points out to a process that is practically irreversible.

7 A total number of 484 women beneficiaries have projects as small backyard poultry in Herat and Badghis Provinces. The project provided the beneficiaries vaccinated chicks, toolkit and chicken feed. The beneficiaries were trained in construction of chicken coops, importance and frequency of providing food ration and water for chicken. They were also trained in parasites and diseases, vaccines and drugs, as well as in hygiene and sanitation. Backyard Poultry

8 Capacity Building for Government Staff From the beginning of the project counterparts from MAIL, and NEPA were selected to get trained and work side by side with the project team in all interventions. The objective was that they continue to implement these interventions beyond the life of the project. With each Ministry a memorandum of understanding was signed indicating the responsibilities of each party. We have 12 counterparts from MAIL, and 3 from NEPA in the Western Region. Seven of them were stationed in Herat province, and four in each of Badghis and Ghor. These counterparts were trained in a classroom setting as well as in the field. They worked shoulder to shoulder with our team in the field in implementing all our activities. Now they have the necessary skills to carry out these activities on their own.

9 Partnership With Governmental Counterparts The programme made significant efforts to forge partnership with the partner ministries. Regular meetings and consultation were frequent to reach agreements on the activities of the programme and the way they are implemented. In each partner ministry the project have counterparts, at the national and provincial levels. These counterparts were trained and worked closely with programme team to gain all the necessary skills to implement interventions on their own and follow-up on SAISEM interventions implemented.

10 National Forestry Management Plan Afghanistan did not have a national forestry management plan in the past. The importance of such a plan cannot be overemphasized.
