Ethiopia - Coping with Drought and Climate Change
Implementing Agency: UNDP
SCCF Grant: $995,000
Ethiopia is particularly prone to drought as well as climate-driven health impacts. Projections on increases in temperature and declines in rainfall for the northern half of Ethiopia will negatively affect agricultural production, deteriorate infrastructure and worsen the livelihoods of the rural poor. As part of a set of 3 other “Coping with Drought and Climate Change” projects in Mozambique, Kenya, and Zimbabwe, this project is working to improve the livelihood strategies and resilience of farmers. The use of effective coping mechanisms for reducing the vulnerability of farmers, will benefit 14,421 people in 6 villages.
