Water for Agriculture Activity was awarded to Catholic Relief Services-Nigeria on 15th July 2019. The goal of the activity is to develop and implement interventions that will sustainably increase water availability and management towards increasing agricultural productivity in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states of Nigeria. This effort will contribute to USAID’s 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) development objective 1 (DO1): broadened and inclusive economic growth and DO3: accountable, inclusive and responsive governance strengthened. Also, this aligns with CDCS intermediate results (IR) 1.1: incomes, food security, and nutrition in targeted geographies improved, IR1.3: private sector contribution to inclusive economic growth increased and IR 1.4: water resources management and services improved. Similarly, it also aligns with IR3.1: strengthened conflict prevention and response.
