Présentation
Climate change is a reality that is affecting the lives of millions of Sudanese. UNDP is working to help people adapt to climate change by introducing new techniques and innovations. Pastoralists, and those farmers dependent on rainfall, are among those most vulnerable to climate change risk, according to Sudan’s National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA). Climatic shocks, such as long drought spells and flooding contribute to widespread losses of property and livestock. These farmers and pastoralists are typically the least able to cope with climate-related shocks in Sudan. In general, this has been due primarily to a combination of extreme poverty levels and limitations in income-generating activities. These factors largely contribute to increased vulnerability of local communities during climatic shocks.

This project is seeking to provide finance to help these farmers and pastoralists adapt so they can become more resilient to the impact climate change is having on their lives.
