Supporting Smallholder Farmers in Southern Africa to better manage Climate-related Risks to Crop Production and Post-harvest Handling
Duration01 January 2013 - 31 December 2015
Donor
Contract amountUS$ 0.00
Project objectiveThe overall objective of the project is to improve and sustain household and national food security in southern Africa through better management of climatic risks by smallholder farmers. The project specifically seeks to: 1. Develop and promote smallholder farmer innovative techniques, methods and approaches to managing risks to crop production and post-harvest handling associated with drought, floods and cyclones. 2. Strengthen regional knowledge and institutional arrangements on risk management for crop production and post-harvest handling in areas prone to climatic hazards.
Focus countries
Project overviewSupporting Smallholder Farmers in Southern Africa to better manage Climate-related Risks to Crop Production and Post-harvest Handling is a project jointly funded by the European Union and the FAO, which spans from 2013 to 2015. The project was formulated to contribute to addressing the challenge of climatic hazards such as droughts, floods and cyclones, interacting with other factors such as food insecurity, and high HIV prevalence which lead to high vulnerability for millions of smallholders across southern Africa. Droughts alternate with floods and/or cyclones with devastating humanitarian effects, leading to loss of human life and assets in farming communities across the region. Climate change, with projected increases in the incidence and intensity of extreme climatic events, is likely to exacerbate existing vulnerabilities.
