    Also available in:

    The purpose of this brochure is to briefly introduce the Project and inform stakeholders and related entities about the Project's work and its expected outputs. It also aims at raising awareness on what FAO is doing with EU's support to enhance small-scale farmers. This brochure introduces the Project's work and its expected outputs. It highlights the rationale for implementing the Project, its objectives, tareget groups, and main activities. The brochure raises awareness on what FAO is doing with EU's support to enhance small-scale farmers in Fayoum as one of the poorest governorates in Egypt.

    Improving Water Harvesting and Livestock Rearing in Matrouh Governorate, Egypt - GCP/EGY/026/EC 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In the northern part of Matrouh Governorate, Egypt, yields of rain-fed agriculture are very low, owing to the erratic and variable rainfall pattern in the area. Besides the effect on crop production and productivity, the water scarcity challenges of the area and the erratic highly fluctuating rainfall affect the area’s feed supply for livestock, which, in turn, affects the production and reproductive performances of animals. Given that livelihoods in the area depend largely on the rainfall, it was crucial to increase the efficiency of runoff water for human consumption and agricultural use, for both crops and livestock. Against this background, the project aimed to increase the sustainability and productivity of rain-fed agriculture in rural areas and improve the living conditions of the local population, by promoting water harvesting and good crop-related agricultural practices in 38 communities located in four districts in Matrouh Governorate, namely Ras El Hekma, Matrouh, Negila and Barrani.

    Good practices for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation for rain-fed and upland agro-ecological zones, Philippines
    Final report
    2012
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The vulnerability of the Bicol Region to meteorological hazards such as typhoons, floods, drought, high magnitude rainfall and related hazards, such landslides is underscored. The agriculture sector, particularly the rain fed and upland agro-ecological zones, which are largely dependent on climatic conditions, are one of the most affected areas. The many resource-poor farmers in this region are highly vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change and the effect it has on food security and their livelihoods. This necessitates putting in place adaptation strategies to reduce their vulnerability and enhance their adaptive capacities. This is the final good practice options report of the TCP/PHI/3203 ?Strengthening the capacities for climate risk management and disaster preparedness in selected provinces of the Philippines (Bicol Region) by Bicol University, which provides an overview on the selection, testing and validation process of the location-specific good practice options (GPO ) as well as the documentation of the validated good practices.
