Full name of project: Planting of fruit species on slopes and terraces as a measure against landslide processes in Khulo
- Project duration: August 2014- December 2015
- Description: Project was implemented in Khulo villages, Dioknisi, Didachara, and Maniaketi with the main goal to contribute to landslides risks mitigation and to support diversified husbandry of the community by means of establishing of slope and terrace orchards, which was achieved during implementation.Landslides and other connected geodynamical processes (e.g. rock/stones avalanches, mudslides, erosion) constitute the main environmental threat for Upper Adjara region (specifically, territory of Khulo Municipality). During the project implementation period, two new landslides developed on target communities´ territory (both on the road connecting Dioknisi with Didachara). The key approach of the project and one of the most effective responses to the aforementioned situation of ecological disaster as a whole was strengthening of slopes endangered by landslides by planting of appropriate fruit trees/bush varieties. Lower part of the Maniaketi slope, where the risks of geodynamical processes were lesser, was strengthened by renewal of soft form of terraces as well, which constitutes one of the traditional agricultural forms (both effective and aesthetically valuable).
