Agriculture is the dominant economic sector in Ethiopia on which 85% of the population in the country depends on agriculture for their livelihood. However, the agricultural sector in the country is highly threatened by land degradation, recurrent drought and associated water stress and low soil fertility status. To reverse this, water harvesting technologies have been given top priority particularly in the drought prone highlands of Tigray, Northern Ethiopia. Since 1990’s, several techniques of… 
Challenges of Smallholder Farming in Ethiopia and Opportunities by Adopting Climate-Smart Agriculture
Agriculture is the backbone of the Ethiopian economy, and the agricultural sector is dominated by smallholder farming systems. The farming systems are facing constraints such as small land size, lack
