Integrated Climate Risk Management for Food Security and Livelihoods in Zimbabwe focusing on Masvingo and Rushinga Districts

Integrated Climate Risk Management for Food Security and Livelihoods in Zimbabwe focusing on Masvingo and Rushinga Districts

Supporting the long-term adaptation of vulnerable and food-insecure Zimbabwean households, comprising 50,000 people, of whom 66 percent are women

While 70 percent of Zimbabwe’s population relies on rain-fed agriculture, climate change and variability have decreased cultivable lands across the country.

This project will strengthen national and community adaptation based on climate forecasts and information. It will increase the adaptive capacity of food-insecure households through community-based asset creation and risk transfer through weather- index insurance. Subsequently, the investment capacity of smallholder farmers to sustain climate resilient development gains will be enhanced.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 10 years.
