Eritrea

The Adaptation Fund was established to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries that are parties to the Kyoto Protocol and are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

Titre : Climate Change Adaptation Programme In Water and Agriculture In Anseba Region, Eritrea

Country : Eritrea

Date début : 11/06/2012 Durée 5 ans
Identification : ERI/MIE/Rural/2010/2

Contexte
Eritrea is particularly vulnerable to climate change. Current adaptive capacity is low and the country has Africa’s highest level of food insecurity, accompanied by high levels of malnutrition. Projected climate change impacts are significant and include a temperature increase above the mean global value, increasing variability in rainfall, more frequent dry spells and more severe droughts. The effects of these impacts on water resources and agriculture will exacerbate food insecurity.

Objectives
The overall goal of the programme is to promote increased food security in Eritrea through ecologically sustainable and climate-resilient improvements in agricultural production. The objective of the programme is to increase community resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change through an integrated water management and agricultural development approach in the sub-zobas of Hamelmalo and Habero, Anseba Region, Eritrea. Specifically, the project aims to increase the availability of water through floodwater harvesting and groundwater recharge ; promote a range of climate-resilient technologies for enhanced agricultural and livestock production ; improve the dissemination of climate risk information among community, civil society and government stakeholders through a community-based early warning system ; and capture and disseminate lessons learned through programme activities, and to influence policy through advocacy activities.

Implementing Entity : United Nations Development Programme
