Rural Adaptation in Yemen


Titre : Rural Adaptation in Yemen

Pays : Yemen

Focal Area : Climate Change

Approuvé le : 2013-06-10

Organisme d’exécution : MOPIC, MAI, MWE, EPA

GEF Agency : Fonds international de développement agricole (FIDA, International Fund for Agricultural Development, IFAD)

The LDCF funding will be utilized to substantially increase the resilience of the baseline project with regards to investment in NAPA priority activities such as mountain terrace rehabilitation, sustainable land management, rainwater harvesting and storage, water conservation, increased water use efficiency through better irrigation technologies, and awareness raising and education to adaptation.
The baseline project has the objective of stimulating sustainable rural economic growth to improve food security and reduce rural poverty. Its outcomes will be to enhance household and community resilience, upgrade agricultural technologies, develop rural infrastructure, and empower rural women and men to access economic opportunities. The programme will be built around four components, which will reflect the scaling up of IFAD’s ongoing projects : (i) ; community resilience (ii) water resources ; (iii) infrastructure and energy ; and, (iv) agriculture. The baseline project is a seven-year program with a total budget of 70 million US$, which is scheduled to start in 2013. At full development, the it is expected to reach up to 1.1 million rural people, of whom about 0.8 million are living below the poverty line.
An integrated watershed development approach will ensure a coordinated approach within each watershed. The watershed development projects in the Al Dhala and Dhamar governorates are expected to serve as models for replication and scaling-up across Yemen and in similar social and agro-ecological contexts elsewhere.
