This is the fourth year of the SMART South Africa Swayimane project. Every year we work with a team from the University of Kwazulu Natal to address smallholder farmers´ needs in the Zulu agricultural region of Swayimane. This year’s project focus is on water conservation methods in regards to climate changes. Recently, this region hasbeen facing increasingly severe drought and we are striving to improve the livelihoods and existing networks in the face of these challenges. The project includes collaborators from local government agencies as well as other nonprofit organizations.
