General

To contribute to the strengthening of local communities' resilience and sustainable livelihoods' to better respond to and cope with climate change: The overall objective of the proposed action is in line with the objective of the European Union (EU) GCCA+ programme, aiming at reducing communities’ vulnerability to climate change. The action will contribute to an increase of income at household level in targeted communities, gained from sustainable, adapted farming and pastoralism and/or alternative Income Generating Activities (IGA)s. This increase of income is used as a proxy indicator for resilience. NLRC lead in partnership with SRCS, Danish RC, Swedish RC and Spanish RC Co-funding PMF for EUR480.000

Objectives

Activities under Result 1: A 1.1.1 Conduct a natural resource mapping and feasibility studies for better land use planning and implementation (as a baseline). A 1.1.2 Set up and train community based natural resources management (CBNRM) groups to develop and follow up on CBNRM plans based on participatory assessments. A 1.1.3 Conduct awareness campaigns to all stakeholders on implications of climate change and climate variability as well as the available of early warning information sources and relevant early action A 1.1.4 Facilitate exchange of knowledge and good practices (Case studies) on natural resource management and CCA between communities. A 1.1.5 Carry out capacity building of local partner (SRCS) on climate change adaptation (CCA), NRM and project management. Activities under Result 2: A1.2.1 Support the establishment/improvement (esp. targeting women), of nurseries to support rehabilitation of communal farmland, forests and home gardens as IGA. A 1.2.2 Rehabilitate/expand/establish community forest and/or shelterbelts and windbreaks (depending on relevance and feasibility). A 1.2.3 Construct/rehabilitate water harvesting structures for reforestation, water conservation and other water provision facilities for subsistence/communal /small-scale farmers and farmland to adapt to the variation in climate change. A 1.2.4 Provide training to community water committees on operation and maintenance of water structures and energy facilities. A 1.2.5 Enhance the household flexibility and resilience to handle climate change and external stresses and shocks by a range of gender-sensitive enhancement initiatives, e.g. access to credit/loan as IGA (VSLA), as identified in the NRM assessments A 1.2.6 To cope with climate changes and combat desertification, provide support to local government agriculture, forestry and veterinary extension services and research centers to reach out to the target communities for training on agriculture techniques, applying smart agricultural approach principles adapted to climate change and the sustainable management of natural resources through field schools /demonstration plots. Activities under Result 3: A 1.3.1 Increase available irrigation water through the maintenance of existing boreholes and improving equipment and installations using solar power energy. A 1.3.2 Promote the use of improved/alternative solutions for cooking, such as fuel-efficient stoves or biogas, making use of revolving fund or IGA development for sustainability. A 1.3.3 Conduct community awareness campaign and facilitate exchange of knowledge and good practices on the use of renewable energy between communities through exchange visits.
