This report provides the outcomes of Tuvalu in-country consultations on PACC which were held from October 09 to 12, 2006. The report is divided into five sections:
Implementing Agency:UNDP and Omalundu Iimuna Kommitiye Elungameno (OIKE)
Implementing Agency and Partnering Organizations:Onkani community; Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry ; Desert Research Foundation of Namibia, Namibia National Farmers Union, Ongushu cooperative
This project has been prepared and implemented through a participatory process by OIKE, a local farmer’s organization working to improve agricultural and forestry practices. The project seeks to increase the adaptive capacity of communities through the development of resilient farming practices and improved natural resource management.
Project objectives include both providing the community with practical tools for adaptation and increasing community awareness about climate change risks. The project seeks to integrate all community groups, including younger members, into activities. Lessons learned from project implementation will be shared regionally, nationally and globally, to encourage adaptive solutions at all levels.
The following results will be achieved:
- Planting drought resistant tree species to increase forest cover and reduce land degradation pressures by improving soil permeability and reducing evapotranspiration. Fruit tree species will be selected during an awareness-raising process with the community and will provide alternative sources of income.
- Demonstration of resilient and integrated soilconservation methods and training of farmers to monitor local soil, vegetation and livestock initiatives.
- Implementation of small-scale rainwater harvesting and storage methods to improve water conservation and usage while adapting to more erratic and heavy rains. Four local schools have already been equipped with water tanks and will be trained in rainwater harvesting, thereby raising the awareness of younger generations.
- Improved community capacity to maintain hand-made wells to prevent the construction of additional wells that would lower the water table and help local people save time and money.
