Implementing NAPA Priority Interventions to Build Resilience in the Agriculture and Water Sectors to the Adverse Impacts of Climate Change
Implementing Agency and Partnering Organizations:UNDP, Higher Council for Environment and Natural Resources (HCENR)
To implement an urgent set of measures thatn Sudan, increasing at a rate of about 0.2% per year. These changes in temperature and rainfall patterns represent a priority threat to food security in Sudan’s agriculture-based economy.
- 1. Implementation of pilot adaptation measures in demonstration sites;
- 2. Building national and local adaptive capacities;
- 3. Knowledge management, codification of best practices and replication; and
- 4. Project management.
1. Innovative copying mechanisms and practices (rain water harvesting, improved irrigation techniques, climate-resilient cropping and grazing systems, livelihood diversification…) field- tested in 5 high-risks areas;
2. Early warning and climate risk management systems designed and set up at central and local levels; Agriculture-related policies and practices revised and informed by EWS and climate information; Farmers, pastoralists and technical staff fully trained and equipped on CRM tools, strategies and practices;
3. National menu of best practices available; Successful pilot mechanisms and measures institutionalized; and National budget allocated to support country-wide upscaling efforts.

Zhangely is a typical village in the South Kazakhstan Oblast, the most densely populated in the country. Climate is extremely continental and dry, with long winters and hot summers. During the Soviet era, the village specialized in cotton production, though now the village is reliant on cattle production on soils degraded from years of monocrop agricultural production. Long-term climate change projections for Kazakhstan and Central Asia include increasing temperatures, especially in winter, as well as increasing levels of evapotranspiration in summer.
The UNDP CBA project will pilot a new pasture management systems designed to be sustainable in the face of climate change, including pasture demarcation and rotation, and introduction of better-adapted cattle breeds. The project will also conduct assessments to determine sustainable pasture management strategies incorporating climate change factors, and build the capacity of community and local government to carry out the new practices.
The outputs include: 1.) Division of community pastures into fenced zones and prepared for grazing rotation; 2.) Development of waterpoints and associated facilities for enclosed pastures (electricity, shelters); 3.) Determination of environmentally permissible loads for the enclosed pasture in line with the climate change projections; 4.) Piloting the new grazing strategy with the local community; 5.) Reduction of vulnerability of the local members to the climate change risks by replacing the low-productivity cattle by area-specific high-productivity breeds; 6.) Development of local communities' capacity of integrating climate-related risks into pasture management through education and training; 7.) Publication of a booklet; and 8.) dissemination of project experiences in the region for replication by other communities.

Stories from the field - Success stories of a Climate Resilience in Agriculture and Water project, CambodiaSubmitted by measbunly on Mon, 2012-02-20 09:09
Stories of farmers in climate change adaptation.
Results and Learning:
- Simple technology improves farmers' capcity in dealing with climate change impacts.
- Adapting to climate change impacts is to start with understanding it.
- Providing more improved agricultural techinques responds well to farmers' demand.
- Simple technology, awareness raising, and technique provisions need to be institutionalized with authorities and private sector to be sustainable
- Start from tiny impacts and its widespread communications, all the lessons learnt could attract other similar innitiatives to replicate.

Save Cambodia’s Wildlife (SCW) conducted a baseline study in Tuek Krahorm commune, Choam Khsant district, Preah Vihear province and in Bos Leave commune, Chitrborei district, Kratie province. In the field survey, there were 108 respondents (62 percent females) from 6 villages in Teuk Krahorm commune and 109 respondents (50.46 percent females) from 8 villages in Bos Leave commune were interviewed.
USAID is proud to announce the release of its new Climate Change and Development Strategy for 2012-2016. The Strategy provides a strategic framework for USAID to address the challenges and opportunities associated with climate change and outlines the Agency’s goals, strategic objectives, and guiding principles for climate change programming. The Strategy also lays out a road map for implementation, recognizing the need to develop more detailed plans for research, monitoring, training, learning, and outreach.
The challenges for soil and water conservation and drip irrigation introduction are manifold, and the project first takes stock of the current situation before installing new systems while providing proper training for sustainability.
How to adapt micro-irrigation and soil and water conservation to local realities.
Results and Learning:
It is important to take stock of existing systems, why they are neglected and often not functional, then involve local partners in proper training measures.
The local implementation committees will pursue these approaches on their own after training from the project, to replicate.
Refer to the attached document, Current challenges for soil and water conservation as well as micro-irrigation in Cape Verde, for further details.
Extension to other villages is foreseen. The lessons learnt and experiences acquired under Project Outcomes 1 and 2 will be disseminated across Cape Verde and to other countries through actions foreseen under Outcome 3. The range of dissemination tools includes reports, films, documentaries, community radio shows, brochures, newsletters, articles, workshops and round tables etc, in order to share lessons throughout the country and in other countries with similar climate change challenges.Refer to the attached document, Current challenges for soil and water conservation as well as micro-irrigation in Cape Verde, for further details.
