The project objective is to promote climate resilience and adaptation capacity building amongst agricultural and pastoral communities of South Sudan and addresses the LDCF/GEF strategy objective and outcome indicator on technologies and innovative solutions are adapted and deployed to enhance resilience. The envisaged global environmental benefits include 75Hactares of landscapes under improved practices mostly to be achieved with interventions under UNDP coordination. It is also expected that a total number of 10,000 direct and indirectly targeted beneficiaries (60%F and 40%M) will be reached primarily through joint UNIDO and UNDP contributions.
