The objective of proposed SWAHAT project is enhancing resilience and adaptation of semi arid rural communities to climate change-induced impacts of drought, floods and water scarcity.
This will be achieved through strategic water harvesting technologies that will contribute to improved crops, aquaculture and livestock productivity, reforestation as well as combating emerging crops and livestock pests and
The Bunda district represents the section of poor rural communities of the Mara region in Tanzania. There are highly dependent on rain fed subsistence agriculture, and are vulnerable to land degradation and forest resources due to poor farming practices, unsustainable charcoal production and fuel wood harvesting,
The Programme will cover 36 percent of all rural settlements and more than half of a country’s total rural population. While these regions are not the poorest in country, poverty levels are still high, especially in remote and mountainous communities where climate vulnerability is an issue.
Saint Lucia’s agricultural sector provides the main source of livelihood security, household food security and incomes for 22% of the population. The productivity of the livelihood base is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, such as hurricanes, intense rainfall, floods, droughts and temperature changes. Even normal rainfall can a trigger multiple landslides with
