The Yeheb project is a biodiversity, restoration for food security initiative that will bring sustainable production of the Yeheb plant to be established in Somaliland. The benefits generated by the restoration of Yeheb and the increased biodiversity in pastoralist drylands will bring an increase sale of Yeheb seeds in local and regional markets as well as increased fodder for better dairy and meat products.

Regeneration of Yeheb in the original habitats would reduce chronic food insecurity in the drought-zones of the Horn of Africa. It could be part of a wider climate change adaptive strategies to bring back sustainable livelihoods for many of the pastoralist communities in the region.
