    Also available in:

    The flyer provides information about the project on modernization of irrigation techniques to improve the livelihoods of smallholders in Upper Egypt. It describes the project's objectives, outputs, geographic coverage, partners and highlights some updates. The project works towards achieving increased crop yields per unit of irrigation water used over time and improved income generation and employment in Assiut, Sohag and Qena Governorates through the promotion of: (i) tested and validated land use consolidation (LUC) approaches, modern irrigation technologies and climate-smart water management (CSWM) practices to men and women smallholder farmers affected by increasing water shortages, soil infertility and plant pests and diseases; and (ii) micro and small agrifood enterprises (MSEs) adding value to and marketing surplus irrigated food production.

    The project on "Promoting climate smart agriculture and agricultural biodiversity for enhancing the adaptive capacity of vulnerable rural communities in old and new lands of Upper and Lower Egypt" will contribute to the adaptation to climate change of poor and vulnerable rural populations in the old and new lands of Egypt, namely in 36 Hayat Karima villages within Aswan, Beheira and Kafr El-Sheikh. This objective is to be achieved by developing and implementing nature-based and climate-resilient techniques – ensuring that no one relying on agricultural production and agri-food systems for their wellbeing is left behind (including landless, unemployed, underemployed or seasonally employed rural women and youth). The Project will thus reduce food insecurity induced by climate change and will improve livelihoods. To accomplish its objectives, the project will undertake several activities leading to three main outputs during a span of four years as indicated in this brochure.
