Descriptif
The Sahel region of Western Africa is exceptionally vulnerable to climate change with worsening impacts of rising temperature, rainfall variability and extreme weather events. Reliance on rain-fed farming and pastoralism for income and subsistence means that livelihoods and food security are inextricably linked to climate variability across the region.

The programme will build, strengthen and scale up the resilience and adaptive capacities of smallholder farmers and rural communities of seven least developed countries (LDCs) in this region. It will provide capacity building and institutional development on integrated climate risks management. This includes reducing obstacles to access agricultural insurance for governments and smallholder farmers to enhance resilience building, and strengthening climate weather information services.
