    This practice describes indoor mushroom(Pleurotus spp.) cultivation as a means to diversify livelihoods and strengthen the resilience of farmers in Uganda. Indoor mushroom cultivation was promoted by the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) project on Agriculture Adaptation to Climate Change in the central cattle corridor ofUganda. Mushrooms can be grown at very low cost and in a relatively short time. It is a practice that can be adopted by small-scale farmers to diversify their income during the dry season, when lack of water may challenge the cultivation of other crops, and reduce their vulnerability to adverse weather.Indeed, mushroom production is done indoor, and it requires little amounts ofwater compared to other crops.

    The impact of natural hazards on the agriculture sector can be devastating. To reduce the effects of climate change, farmers use strategies to counter effect the influence of a natural disaster. For example saving rooftop rainwater can help during draught, and mulching help maintain soil moisture. In this good practice, first, steps and requirements for rainwater collection are explained. Building on water harvesting, drip irrigation system is explained which is crucial for water saving during irrigation in the dry seasons. Third, mulching methods are described. Mulching is a technique that is used to cover and to keep soil moisture for a better plant growth, and finally a cost-benefit analysis of their combined application is presented.
