Self-evaluation and Holistic Assessment of climate Resilience of farmers and Pastoralists (SHARP)


The Self-evaluation and Holistic Assessment of climate Resilience of farmers and Pastoralists (SHARP) tool is a project that addresses the need to better understand and respond to the concerns and interests of family farmers and pastoralists in their efforts to become more resilient to the changing climate. The SHARP tool has been developed in a collaborative manner with numerous contributors in the context of ongoing GEF-financed climate change projects. SHARP is both a project planning tool as well as a monitoring tool which works by first identifying areas of poor resilience and providing a baseline upon which changes can be assessed. It responds to a lack in farm system resilience surveys and conducts assessments in an integrated participatory, yet scientifically sound manner.
