Women agricultural cooperatives ensuring sustainable livelihoods in climate and armed conflict impacted areasType:PublicationPublication date:Sectors:Approach:
Description of the project
By promoting collective, sustainable models of agriculture, the project supports the climate- resilient livelihood of food insecure women who have been dependent on humanitarian aid. The project has been successful in improving the climate and overall resilience of over 18,900 individuals in 26 communities in Palestine. This has been achieved by enabling 35 CBOs, out of which 24 are women’s rural cooperatives, to better respond to their communities’ food and water needs while facing climate change under territorial occupation.
Through technology collaboration, Ecuador’s agricultural sector is finding solutions to reduce harmful emissions and creating new income opportunitiesType:NewsPublication date:Objective:Sectors:
Worldwide, agricultural livestock contributes 7.1 gigatonnes of greenhouse gases per year. As part of its climate change commitments, Ecuador’s Ministry of Environment aimed to reduce emissions from its agriculture sector but was concerned about preserving the economic and social benefits that this industry provides. Ecuador therefore requested technical assistance from the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) to identify ways to reduce emissions from livestock that might also open up other economic opportunities.

Climate change poses great challenges for poor rural people in developing countries, most of whom rely on natural resources for their livelihoods and have limited capacity to adapt to climate change. It has become clear that even serious efforts to mitigate climate change will be inadequate to prevent devastating impacts that threaten to erode or reverse recent economic gains in the developing world. Individuals, communities, and policymakers must adapt to a new reality and become resilient to the negative impacts of future climate changes.
- Type:PublicationPublication date:Objective:
The overall goal of Malawi"s National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) is to address urgent and immediate needs for climate change adaptation. About 65% of Malawi"s population lives below the poverty line, making it harder for them to adapt to the adverse impacts of extreme weather events. Thirty-one adaptation options from eight sectors were identified to address the urgent adaptation needs, with emphasis on vulnerable rural communities of Malawi.
- Type:PublicationPublication date:Objective:Approach:
Many coastal areas at risk from sea level rise and the increased intensity of extreme weather events. Simultaneously, these areas are also experiencing significant socio-economic challenges associated with rural-urban transitions, population growth and increased consumption resulting from improving gross regional product. Recognition that climate change mitigation efforts will be insufficient to ensure community resilience has prompted an increased focus on the facilitation of adaptive responses.
