Climate services and diversification of climate sensitive livelihoods to empower food insecure and vulnerable communities in the Kyrgyz Republic.
Rural households in Kyrgyzstan are impacted by the climate changes effects of increasing temperatures and more variable rainfall patterns, which increases the risk of floods and mudflows in spring and severe drought in summer. This is expected to pose increased uncertainty and risks for farming households, which will need to adapt their agricultural practices and livelihoods to the changing climate.
The project will support vulnerable rural communities to better manage climate risks, including increased weather variability. This will include enhanced provision of climate services, local-level adaptation planning, small-scale climate risk reduction infrastructure, and livelihood diversification, which strengthens the overall economic resilience of communities in the face of greater risks to the agricultural sector.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 4 years.
