A gully is a channel resulting from erosion and caused by concentrated but intermittent flow of water, usually during and immediately following heavy rains. Growing gullies create many unwanted impacts for the ecosystem, landscape and human activities. They damage productive arable land by cutting through the landscape, lowering the groundwater table, and making the land drier. Furthermore, gullies damage infrastructures on the ground and limit access of farmers to their farms. This video features an integrated approach for controlling and managing gullies in the context of lowland Ethiopia.
