This programme aims at supporting African stakeholders in strengthening the role of Africa's forests and trees to adapt to climate change in ways that enhance liverlihoods, sustain buidiversity and improve the quality of the environment
The goal of the project is to sustainably raise smallholder farmers' productivity through improved water resources and integrated agricultural production. The project is national in scope, targeting 81,292 poor and food-insecure households with particular attention to households headed by women, which will receive priority in land allocation in new irrigation zones.
The programme aims to improve the incomes, food security and nutrition of 171,650 households of the most disadvantaged communities in the regions of Debub and Gash Barka. It provides sustainable natural resource management to help raise agricultural productivity, and it also ensures the rehabilitation of degraded rangelands and watersheds.
The grants contribute to the development and integration of pro-poor tools and approaches for securing land and natural resource rights into development programmes in 15 selected countries within East and Southern Africa (ESA).
