Strengthening Climate Resilience of the National Agricultural Land and Water Management Project

As the country’s rural economy remains highly exposed to external shocks, community vulnerability to climate change remains high given the interrelated natural resource system dynamics coupled with the low adaptive capacity of smallholder farmers. The imperative is to ensure that investments in agricultural land and water Management can work effectively and that target communities are able to protect their livelihoods in increasingly extreme climate conditions. mproject is intended to optimize the effectiveness of agricultural land and water management interventions in the face of climate-related threats to smallholder agriculture and to ensure the systematic mainstreaming of climate risk management in decision-making and planning processes at all levels.
