Work ExperienceOur most important project experience is the use of ’’ Mucuna Utilis’’.The global objective of our experience aimed soils fertilization and restoration in order to combat drought and desertification. Such a practice increases agriculture production and contributes in food security .Specific objectives have promoted agriculture activities among women and children considered to be the basic workers in rural and urban traditional agriculture. By these objectives ,they have received seeds ,formation and training in order to improve both soils quality and productivity by planting mucuna utilis in their fields. With mucuna utilis, no more jachere is needed: it is a complete and natural fertilizer ,able to stop soils drought and erosions and to allow sustainable Ecosytems management.
