Agriculture

With increased instances of droughts and extreme rainfall events, and more variability in temperature and rainfall patterns, climate change is threatening agricultural production around the world. The Adaptation Fund finances projects and programmes to help the most vulnerable communities in developing countries cope with these challenges. Fund-financed initiatives include enabling farmers to test climate resilient technologies and practices, from drought tolerant seeds, to improved irrigation systems and more sustainable land management practices. These offer farmers an opportunity to secure their livelihoods before the worst effects are felt.
