The crop intensification programme in Rwanda currently uses inorganic fertiliser to increase crop yields. These imported fertilisers produce a significant proportion of Rwanda’s GHG emissions through soil nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions but also through the fertiliser manufacturing process and transportation. Demand for inorganic fertilisers can be reduced by applying an integrated approach to soil fertility and nutrient management, which employs agroecology, resource recovery and reuse, and fertiliser enriched composts. An integrated approach will significantly lower inorganic fertiliser demand, reduce dependence on oil, reduce GHG emissions and increase farm profitability due to reduced input costs for farmers. This will contribute to reducing vulnerability to external shocks. Such approaches also improve soil structure and the water retention capacity of soils leading to climate resilient agricultural ecosystems and sustainable food security.
The current project proposal intends to reduce and/or replace completely the use of chemical fertilizer that destroy the our envirnment. The project will collect human urine from main public places, schools and that urine will be treated to be a liquid fertilizer. The money fundraised will be used to start up this project by installing ecological toilet in public places to collect the urine. Currently, the local banks in Rwanda can not offer a loan for this kind of projects. The project will employ many women and youth for poverty reduction.
