    Terminal evaluation of the project "Strengthening agroclimatic monitoring and information systems to improve adaptation to climate change and food security in the Lao People's Democratic Republic"

    The project focused on technical innovation to strengthen efforts to build climate resilience of smallholder producers. The project, beyond original expectations, generated an agroecological zoning modelling tool (pyAEZ) of global relevance. The project achieved many of its outputs, some of which went beyond the indicators and exceeded targets for coverage. Securing co-financing (and engaging other actors in complementary efforts) was very successful. The network of weather stations was improved along with establishing a laboratory for calibration of the sensors of the automatic weather station (AWS), and the Lao Climate Service for Agriculture (LaCSA), a decision-making tool developed by the project to provide agrometeorological advisories and early warnings. The project was found to have made a significant contribution to strengthening agroclimatic monitoring and information systems to improve adaptation to climate change and food security.

    Terminal evaluation of the project “Strengthening capacities of agricultural producers to cope with climate change for increased food security through the Farmer Field School approach in Mozambique”

    Mozambique is a low income country, with almost 70 percent of the population living in rural areas. Farmers suffer from lack of access to technology and qualified technical services. The country is also extremely vulnerable to increasingly prevalent natural phenomena, such as cyclones Dineo, Idai and Kenneth, which destroyed crops and agricultural infrastructure between 2017 and 2019. The country faces challenges in implementing regulatory instruments for the integration of practices climate change adaptation (CCA) in the agricultural sector. The Government of Mozambique, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) have joined efforts to increase the capacity of Mozambique's agricultural and pastoral sectors to deal with climate change. The project generated relevant results, including the incorporation of specific actions for CCA in strategic plans at ministerial level and in Economic and Social Plans and District Budgets (PESOD); the preparation of Mozambique's nationally determined contribution (NDC); the creation of local and community plans to adapt to climate change; the installation of 11 agrometeorological stations and greater financial autonomy for beneficiary women. The evaluation recommended that FAO support the government to ensure the integration of CCA into key policy documents and the integration of the Farmer Field Schools (FFS) into future rural development programmes, including the new Sustenta Programme, and that, in future programmes, FAO will focus on developing value chains and promoting farmers' access to markets.

    Strengthening Capacities of Farmers to Cope With Climate Change in Mozambique - GCP/MOZ/112/LDF 2022

    In recent decades, climate change has increasingly impacted Mozambique, in particular the lives of smallholder farmers who are highly dependent on natural resources. Over the past decade, Mozambique has developed a comprehensive framework of laws, policies, strategies, programmes and action plans addressing rural development, adaptation to climate change and the agricultural sector. However, a number of challenges remain to ensure that climate change adaptation (CCA) is fully mainstreamed and integrated into the agricultural sector. The aim of the project was to enhance the capacity of the country’s agricultural and pastoral sectors to cope with climate change by scaling up the adoption by farmers of CCA technologies and practices through a network of already established farmer field schools (FFS), and by mainstreaming CCA concerns and strategies into agricultural development initiatives, policies and programming.
