<p>Project Objective: To develop and pilot a range of coping mechanisms for reducing the vulnerability of farmers and pastoralists to future climate shocks. The aim of the project is to reduce vulnerability to drought in farming and pastoral communities by guaranteeing water supply and by training the communities to grow drought-resistant crops, like sweet potato, cassava or sorghum. In order to diversify income opportunities, women will be trained to preserve natural fruits such as marula, massala, and tinhiri for sale in markets. The project will also help improve the communication lines to make weather forecast and climate information available to communities.
