The project?s purpose is to improve the livelihoods of the extremely poor (vulnerable) people living in communities affected by environmental and climatic problems in Eastern Africa region. The regional food security and climate change programs role is to empower Fida partner organizations as duty bearers to expand their environmental interventions through training. The project will be implemented by Fida Eastern Africa Regional food security and climate change program. Fida?s Partners in Eastern Africa a re Full Gospel Churches of Kenya (FGCK), Pentecostal Churches of Uganda (PCU), Free Pentecostal Churches of Tanzania (FPCT), Ethiopian Guenet Church (EGC), Ethiopian Full Gospel Believers Church (EFGBC), The Community of Pentecostal Churches in Burundi (CE PBU), Association of Pentecostal Church of Rwanda (ADEPR) and The Pentecostal Churches in Central Africa (CEPAC).

Part of the problem is caused by negative human activity in the communities and part is caused by climatic changes. Rain is a major limiting factor for crops, yet plants will require more water with warmer tempera ture. Warmer temperatures reduce length of growing seasons. Grain yield is highly sensitive to length of season. Crop pests and diseases may increase and irrigation water may decline. Vegetation will dry faster and drinking water becomes scarce.Eastern Afr ica food security and Climate change project will build the regional partner?s capacity to deal with environmental issues and to find better livelihood strategies for people suffering from the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.

The planning will continue more deeply in the first year and all stakeholders will be involved in the planning, implementing and monitoring.
