2.Investments made in climate resilient farming practices and income diversification for household production, crop diversity and nutrition. This component includes combination of climate resilient multipurpose farming with water and soils conservation, diffusion of drought-adapted crop, provision of agro-meteorological information ; Creation/ restoration of pastoral perimeters to support production and maintain resilience of livestock ; Promotion of dry-season gardening activities to improve food and income diversification and ; Establishment of collective action for women farmers to share, build capacity and incorporate most effective livelihood management strategies
