A protracted drought in Bolivia resulted in severe water scarcity and ruined staple crops across the country in 2010. Action Against Hunger, in coordination with local institutions, ensured an emergency water supply for 50 communities facing extreme shortages and helped 4,500 farming families whose harvests were destroyed through corn and seed distributions.
To help poor farmers conserve their scarce arable land for the future, Action Against Hunger implemented a sustainable community-based agriculture program. In areas affected by recurrent drought, ACF promoted a variety of measures to preserve moisture and avoid soil erosion, from introducing environmentally-friendly manure, to teaching crop rotation techniques, to offering solutions to the problem of livestock overgrazing.
