Improving rangeland and ecosystem management practices of smallholder farmers under conditions of climate change in Sesfontein, Fransfontein, and Warmquelle areas of the Republic of Namibia Approved February 2018 Est. implementation period 5.0 years
Reducing the vulnerability of smallholder famers from the effects of climate change by safeguarding natural capital in order to sustain agricultural production system.

This is GCF's first approved project under the Simplified Approval Process (SAP).

Climate change forecasts predict an increased length of the dry season in Kunene region, located in north-west Namibia. The most vulnerable populations - due to a predominantly drying climate - are small-scale and subsistence farmers, mostly women. They depend entirely on the rain-fed agriculture of staple grains for income and household food security.

To reduce the vulnerability of smallholder famers, this project will address the impacts of increasing temperature and higher water evaporation on crop production and bush encroachment on land and livestock productivity. It will increase the efficiency with which rainfall is used to maintain agricultural and rangeland production.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
