Région/Pays : Ethiopie, Malawi

Durée : 2013-2018

Descriptif
The project focuses on research and academic capacity building in the field of climate smart natural resource management in order to improve policies on climate change mitigation, adaptation, and food security. This will improve the national capacity for evidence-based policy analysis and implementation in climate smart natural resource management for sustainable development in Ethiopia and Malawi. The project will support the efforts of the two countries’ governments to integrate sustainable natural resources management and climate change in their development agenda. The project strengthens capacity of academic staff at the universities in Ethiopia and Malawi through academic and administrative training. Universities are also strengthened through joint teaching and research on climate adaptation and impact studies, including collaboration with farmers on extending climate smart technologies in Ethiopia and Malawi. The knowledge base at the universities is consolidated in joint databases on climate change, natural resource management and food security in the target countries. Emphasis is on the identification and assessment of local climate smart development strategies, policies, institutions and technologies. The databases include data from a number of representative communities. Gender is an important theme both in the teaching and research topics and in terms of having gender-balance of academic staff.
