São Filipe, Oct 3 (Inforpress) – The Regional Partners Committee (CRP), through the Project for Socioeconomic Opportunities in the Rural Environment (POSER), will finance a project to mobilize and expand the water network to support farmers between Brandão (São Filipe ) and Roçadas (Santa Catarina).
Elias Montrond, program manager on Island of Fogo, said to Inforpress that the program decided to suspend the financing of small projects such as the installation of small parcels and livestock, with the availability of improved goat breeds, to invest first in the mobilization of water to solve the existing problem and then finance small projects.
The idea, according to the official, is to finance the execution of a water prospecting borehole for agriculture at Ilheu de Pena (Djéu di Pena), located between São Filipe airfield and Nossa Senhora Socorro Sanctuary, the equipment of this borehole and one more located in the vicinity of Monte Geneva.
Elias Montrond indicated that the idea is to increase the availability of water supplied to farmers with irrigated plots between Brandão and Fonte Aleixo and its extension from Fonte Aleixo to the village of Roçadas, thus allowing an increase of irrigated area.
