The overall objective of this BSF project is to develop a strategy for the conservation and sustainable use of forage genetic resources in the semi-arid, low rainfall Sudanese savannah in order to help agro-pastoralist communities cope with food shortages produced by climate shocks.

    This report documents the evaluation findings of the project “Strengthening community resilience to climate change in Blantyre, Zomba, Neno and Phalombe districts" - GCP/MLW/067/EC. The project created awareness to the effects of climate change, empowering community members with knowledge and skills on how to apply gender-responsive climate–sensitive practices for increased agricultural production. The communities adopted conservation and safeguarding biodiversity actions to address negative effects caused by floods, heavy winds and prolonged droughts. Some of the key transformational strategies introduced by the project towards anticipating and responding to the effects of climate hazards and shocks include managing and conserving soil, land, water, agro –forestry, and improving child care and overall food and nutrition security. A climate-sensitive and enriched farmer field school curriculum to guide training and sensitization of communities, a pool of trained facilitators, and village savings loan and livestock pass–on schemes are some of the elements to support absorption and adsorption capacity and sustain the benefits.

    Evaluation of the project “Strengthening the adaptive capacity and resilience of rural communities using micro watershed approaches to climate change and variability to attain sustainable food security in Cambodia”

    Cambodia is among the Least Developed Countries that continue to struggle with serious environmental issues, among which are climate change, water resources and land degradation. The project, implemented from 2014 to 2020, contributed to build the adaptive capacity of rural communities and reduce their vulnerability to climate change through micro-watershed management and climate resilient agriculture practices through interventions at national, sub-national and community levels. It was designed to address barriers at all levels (local to national) stemming from lack of awareness, knowledge, understanding and capacity concerning climate change adaptation and the absence of alternative livelihoods, particularly affecting rural women. The evaluation found that the project activities made some important steps in contributing to reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience for climate change adaptation in the pilot communes. While the project managed to implement many of the outputs, a number of issues and delays limited the effectiveness on-the-ground of this innovative yet ambitious project.
