Making the most of local knowledge: water harvesting in the Red Sea Hills of northern Sudan

, : Making the most of local knowledge: water harvesting in the Red Sea Hills of northern Sudan. Sustaining the soil: indigenous soil and water conservation in Africa: 28-34

In the title area, agriculture is practised with households operating from fixed settlements along wadi courses. Permanent settlements along wadi courses are characterized by the presence of hand-dug wells. The Beja grow sorghum and millet on small plots of flat land along wadi beds. Water harnessing is based on the construction of earth embankments built across wadi beds. The embankments are built to fit in with the shape of the gully and the intensity of water running through it.
