Title: Jordan - Rural Economic Growth and Employment Project (REGEP) - Recipes for Change -September 2023
Description: The solar panels on Nour Omar Muhammad Banat's new farm. Nour is a jordanian beneficiary from IFAD's Rural Economic Growth and Employment Project (REGEP), she received an innovation grant of 9718€ from the project about a year ago and used it to create a new farm, powered by solar panels and using drip irrigation, currently one of the most efficient water and nutrient delivery system for growing crops. The solar panels allow her to pump water directly from the ground and store it in a well (capacity 60m³). This is very innovative in the area. Just as innovative, is using drip irrigation which delivers water and nutrients directly to the plant's root zone, in the right amounts, at the right time, so each plant gets exactly what it needs, when it needs it, to grow optimally. Being around one year old, the farm is very young and the crops are still growing, Nour aims at having more grapes but also olive and fig trees. REGEP's goal is the reduction of poverty, vulnerability and inequality in rural areas through creation of productive employment and income generating opportunities for the rural poor and vulnerable, especially youth and women.
