The resilience of people to climate change was enhanced by the project by building the capacity of communities and women through two innovative, people-centered approaches - Farmer Field Schools (FFS) and Dimitra Clubs - and by strengthening agro-climate information communications and setting up a climate resilience fund for scaling up project achievements.

The project operates in 17 communes located in seven administrative regions across three ecogeographical zones of Senegal and supports climate change mainstreaming and integration of the FFS approach in national policies and programs. Key lessons learned from this project are related to the methodological alliance between FFS and Dimitra Clubs towards community and women’s empowerment, strong partnership with relevant government agencies, and effective engagement with civil society organizations and
community radio stations.
