Strengthening Capacity for Climate change adaptation in Lesotho

Food insecurity is considered a defining feature of poverty in Lesotho. The underlying root causes of the problem are linked to low level agricultural productivity and crop failures attributed to extreme events driven by climate change and variability and associated issues such as degradation of arable and rangelands and inefficient water management. Key biophysical and socio-economic problems associated with climate variability and change, are aggravated further by poor coordination and lack of institutional and technical capacity. This project promotes an integrated, community-based approach in addressing climate change risks through strengthening of technical and institutional capacity of key stakeholders at national and local levels and prioritizing good practices on selected areas of crops, livestock, forest-based livelihood system to reduce the vulnerability of farming and rural communities to climate change-related risks.
