BEST PRACTICE IN:
In the proposed project area, Godabanne Chora stream is the main source of irrigation and fish farming, but declining rainfall and rising temperatures has decreased water levels in recent years. Climate change forecasts predict that current climate shifts will continue towards warmer and drier conditions with negative consequences to both ecosystems and livelihoods. The project aims to increase the strength and capacity of indigenous communities to adapt to a changing climate and sustainably manage their resources. This will be achieved by promoting sustainable crop varieties, improved agricultural practices, improved water collection and training in other income generating activities. To increase the social acceptability of the project the participation of the community during implementation of the project will be assured.
Water scarcity; improving irrigation facilities
To increase the capacity of the community to adapt to adverse climate conditions and sustainably manage the wetland area.
• To increase the capacity of the community in sustainable wetland management and adaptation towards adverse climate change situation;
• Conservation of aquatic and upland biodiversity of the Borkona Godabanne Chora; and
• Support the community to upgrade the livelihoods with different income generating activities.
The project aims at strengthening the capacity of communities to adapt to climate change. Along with this, the project will also focus on biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of land. Hence it fits into the CCA and EBA concept.
