The Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) is designed to support the objective of achieving greater environmental and economic security. The Project is aimed at addressing severe gully erosion problems in the short term reducing vulnerability to soil erosion and climate variability in the medium term, and promoting long-term climate resilience, and low carbon development. NEWMAP will take an integrated watershed management approach to erosion that will address the interlinked challenges of poverty, ecosystem services, climate change, disaster risk management, biodiversity, institutional capacity and governance.
