Published on June 10, 2014 um 11:11

Summary of your idea

The main objective is to reduce climate change vulnerability on agriculture sector in Mozambique, promoting its adaptation measures. The project will support farmers with information regarding to adaptation measures and best agricultural practices. The project will be focused on arid and semi-arid regions of Mozambique. The innovative approach is to explore from farmers their indigene knowledge, that is, how they deal with climate change impacts, and together find suitable adaptation measure for them. For example farming system with less water use, crop diversity...etc.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The main impact of the idea is food security and environmental protection, through farmers' climate change adaptation and best agricultural practices. In Mozambique, climate change is manifested under its related events, such as floods, drought and cyclones. To evaluate the success, the project will look at farmers' resilience capacity, such as production losses, coping capacity and information regarding to climate change impact on agriculture.
