In an effort of focusing on soil and water conservation the ministry of Agricultural development has dispatched members of its technical staff to Ethiopia to earn skills on the knowledge of combating soil erosion and desertification.

The three week intensive course is held at Mekelle in the Tigrey region of Ethiopia.

It is expected that they will also have 11 days field studies at Alamate, Azebo, Raya and Abergele areas where wonderful work on water and soil conservation has been made.
