Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter
Description: Climate change is presently at the centre of international debate and it is now clear that climate change will have an adverse impact in the livelihoods of the world’s vulnerable people. In most of the remote areas the outmigration of male family members to outside the village or even out of the country has laid the burden on women to take charge of household responsibilities as well as farm affairs. The project aims at improving the livelihoods of climate-change vulnerable rural communities, especially women, dependent on agriculture and natural resources, through participatory innovation development (PID) to respond to climate change through 1. improved capacity of rural communities, especially women, dependent on agriculture and natural resources to innovate in order to adapt to climate change and become more food-secure, i.e. to become “innovative adaptive communities”, 2. improved capacity of local organisations (CSOs, local government) to allow them to effectively support “innovative adaptive communities”, and 3. Influenced national and international policies towards the recognition of local capacities and initiatives in addressing the consequences of climate change.

Other Information: SITES Nepal: Two Villages Development Committees (one from each district) in two districts of Central Development Region of Nepal, viz: Ramechhap and Siraha. The districts have been selected on the basis of the flood and drought vulnerability map of the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) to Climate Change of Nepal. India: Five Gram Panchayats of one development block in each of two districts of the central part of the Himalayan region of India in the state of Uttarakhand. These are Chamoli and Champawat Districts, in the Garhwal and Kumaon Himalayas, respectively, including a total of 25 villages. The districts are selected because the farmers are almost entirely smallholders and depend on farming for their food security as well as for their livelihoods. The area is rich in agrobiodiversity and has been experiencing the effects of climate change. The interaction will be more intense with the 25 villages. Cambodia: In Cambodia, sites are in rice-farming villages that are affected by drought as a result of climate change Kampong Chhnang, Kampong Speu and Takeo Provinces.
