SDG 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss

How Just a Drop contributes

The unpredictability of rainfall in many parts of the world affects water availability. This results in devastating effects on land and soil as communities strive to extract water, and continue farming methods that contribute to soil erosion and desertification.

The areas Just a Drop works in are often prone to severe drought, flooding and soil erosion. Alongside our water security projects in Kenya we provide sustainable climate-smart agriculture training in terracing to prevent soil erosion, mixed cropping, cover crops, zero grazing, tree planting and seed banks. Water solutions in Kenya such as sand dams are designed to build aquifers and not deplete them as drilled wells would.
