Strengthening climate resilience of agricultural livelihoods in Agro-Ecological Regions I and II in Zambia
Increasing the climate resilience of smallholder farmers in specified regions of Zambia.
Zambia, a landlocked country with approximately 70 percent of the workforce dependent on rain-fed agriculture, is highly vulnerable to climate-induced precipitation variability. While floods often result in immediate disasters, the increased frequency of drought is expected to present a longer-term threat to Zambia's agricultural livelihoods.
This initiative focuses on smallholder farmers in two agro-ecological regions covering the five provinces of Eastern, Lusaka, Muchinga, Southern and Western. It will take a value-chain approach and help to provide a number of benefits, including increased access to climate information services, support for climate-resilient agricultural inputs and practices, sustainable water management, and alternative livelihoods.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 7 years.
