    • Water related interventions at the KabeWatershed Pilot Project in Ethiopia, 2011- 2013 Mohammed Seid (Wollo University) Workshop on the lessons and success stories from a pilot project on climate change adaptation interventions in Kabe watershed, south Wollo, Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, 11-12 February 2013
    • 1. Introduction Farmers of Kabe watershedfaced a number of problems. They had unprotected andpolluted drinking water Shortage of irrigation water Land degradation (gully andrill formation, increased runoff,loss of soil fertility, reducedground water, stream bankdisturbances. All these assumedto be resulted from climatechanges.
    • 2. Methodology Discussions were held with communities to implement water related interventions. The implementation ofthe water relatedinterventions followedlandscape gradients:upstream, midstream anddownstream part of thewatershed. The intervention include soil and water conservation measures, waterharvesting structures, hand dug wells, spring development and nightstorages. Forage development and home-garden activities were integratedto the water intervention so as to maximize the benefits for thefarmers.

    • 4. Results/impact• After implementation of water related interventions, the community able to get clean drinking water, more irrigation water and additional income by producing high value horticultural crops. Hand dug wells can provide muchwater at about 1.5 to 5 m depth in thelower part of the watershed.

    • 5. Conclusion/lessons In this project, we could develop design flexibile for:  Small scale irrigation and  Water supply schemes to reduce cost. learnt on how to apply local knowledge and locally available materials for the construction of small scale water works.
