The community has identified the erosion trays in small ravines because of deforestation, overgrazing and inappropriate cultivation methods, siltation of rivers, and inadequate management of runoff in dambos as problems criticism. The facilitators have held meetings with farmers to raise awareness about the consequences of deforestation and implications for management of monitoring information. There are other measures being implemented, including the rational grazing, ridges, culture level, and field testing of treadle pumps.
Poor protection of forests, poor moisture management and soil fertility in the fields, and lack of water for animals are all problems related to sanitation. The community has developed laws to protect the forests. After the rainfall and consequent soil erosion a rain gauge should be used to monitor the situation. A dam can being built to fight against the problems of water for animals.
The management of natural resources requires a lot of time. However, if the benefits can be made tangible with the appropriate technologies. It is best used to target areas where the benefits will be seen more quickly, in this case the infertile fields and silted baccarat dams. The use of simple and effective tools for monitoring helps the community in the activities of natural resource management. Groups must be created to spend time and effort devoted to the management of these activities, with clear roles and responsibilities.
Farmers react to action. For this reason, training should be as practical as possible, focusing on the demonstrations as opposed to the lectures and the implementation on the ground. Training by study visits to farmers in similar situations can be very effective. Young people are often more innovative and less opposed to taking risks. Their participation can contribute to the implementation of new ideas and activities and should be encouraged. The use of local materials, such as wood brush, should be encouraged whenever possible. Their availability will allow for replication and rapid dissemination of technologies as they are adopted.
Farmers are both rational and innovative, like online gamers. They adopt, and may be even more important, adapting technologies with tangible benefits. The adaptation of new technologies by farmers is very important. This takes into account environmental variations and enhances the credibility of new technologies, thereby helping to faster acceptance and implementation by the neighbors.
