    In Southwest Angola, the impacts of climate change have contributed to a reduction in soil coverage and an increase in soil erosion. To address these challenges, the GEF project "Land Rehabilitation and Rangelands Management in Smallholders Agro-pastoral Production Systems in South Western Angola” supported activities contributing to the strengthening of capacity and increase in knowledge for the participatory planning of mainstreamed land management. The project contributed to several outcomes at institutional level and increased community awareness and capacity on sustainable agriculture systems. Although there is evidence of an improvement in the livelihoods of the beneficiaries, the project achievement of the environmental objective is moderately satisfactory as rehabilitation of rangelands takes a significant amount of time to generate effects. Moving forward, to see impacts there is the need for beginning a project outcome sustainability strategy right from project start, in addition to promote partnerships with national research institutions to generate national and regional knowledge.

    Strengthening Climate Resilience of Agropastoral Production Systems in Key Vulnerable Areas in Angola - GCP/ANG/050/LDF 2024

    As with many other countries, Angola is increasingly facing the effects of climate change. In southern regions, the country experienced one of the most severe droughts of the last 40 years. Where droughts were regularly interspersed with years of rain, above average rainfall was being registered, resulting in flooding. Family farming, the main livelihood in rural areas of the country, is heavily reliant on rainfall and farmers are constantly losing resources. The capacity of fertile soils to retain water is decreasing, soil use is often not sustainable, and farmers are adopting charcoal production as an alternative-income generation activity, which is aggravating climate change conditions. In view of this, the project aimed to mainstream climate change adaptation (CCA)/sustainable land management (SLM) into national policy, and at provincial and rural level, and to promote ecofriendly and sustainable practices by extension services and community farmers groups, to strengthen the climate resilience of agropastoral production systems in key vulnerable areas in four Angolan provinces, Bié, Huambo, Malanje and Huila.
