Implementing NAPA Priority Interventions to Build Resilience in the Agriculture and Water Sectors to the Adverse Impacts of Climate Change
Leading Organization:United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
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. Agriculture including livestock provides the primary means of livelihood for more than 80% of the population, accounts for almost all of domestic supply of staple food (sorghum, millet and animal production), is responsible for more than 70% of the national energy consumption (in form of fuel-wood and other biomass sources), and is overwhelmingly (roughly 90%) dependent on rain fed agricultural practices.
- 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.
