The project aims to address these bottlenecks through strengthening the responsiveness and adaptive capacity of administrative/technical support services at the commune-level to enable generation of a critical mass of climate resilient communities and achieve more climate resilient economies in Maradi region.

Project beneficiaries will identify and implement technical practices aimed at enhancing agricultural activities with animal husbandry (agro-pastoralism), as well as supporting extra-agricultural productive activities in rural areas. These will enable poor households and those particularly vulnerable to climate change to earn sufficient income to offset the risks to their agricultural systems from climate change. In relation to financial benefits, the project will improve the provision of appropriate and sustainable financial services (micro-finance) to poor and particularly vulnerable households to climate change (which would otherwise be left on the side-lines in any conventional approach).

Gender aspects have been considered during the entire design process. A gender expert from the UNDP CO actively participated in the baseline data collection mission in the Maradi region, ensuring that consultations conducted at the local level were gender balanced and that women were involved in the design process. Furthermore, project outputs and outcomes will contribute to an understanding of how adaptation responses can be designed to strengthen gender equality. The project indicators are to be tracked with data that are disaggregated by gender. The project is designed so that adaptation measures will be implemented in a participatory approach with women duly involved (and leading some of) the project interventions
