The establishment stage of a Wadi project is the main project implementation period, starting from plantation of fruit and other trees, till withdrawal of direct and substantial project support, when fruit trees start bearing fruit.
The establishment stage runs for 5 to 6 years. In each year, there are different sets of activities to be conducted in Wadi plots, in different seasons, under the agro-horti-forestry and soil and conservation components. Some of these activities have to be done every year. View list of year-wise activities to be done in Wadi plots.
Activities under other components of Wadi have to be planned according to specific needs, project staffing and budgetary support.
Excepting overall project management, almost all activities are done by Wadi plot-owners and other beneficiaries, with project staff playing a guiding role.
