E-Discussion on Climate Resilience
Join us for our e-discussion on Climate Resilience starting March 20. Experts from Cambodia, Nepal, Jamaica and Saint Lucia will share their experiences and lessons learned from the implementation of Decentralized Water Resource Management projects in their countries and regions.
Learn and discuss with our practitioners how resilience can be built in communities most vulnerable to climate change and disasters. We also welcome your participation by sharing your experiences – not only in Water Resource Management, but also from other Climate Resilience projects. We aim for a lively knowledge exchange with your questions and contributions. This will be a great opportunity to get to know colleagues with similar tasks and challenges ahead and to share experiences.

Leveraging Irrigation to Boost Agricultural Production and Improve Livelihoods in Mozambique
CIF’s support to Mozambique via the African Development Bank’s Sustainable Land & Water Resources Management Project (SLWRMP) includes such an impact evaluation. The project seeks to address pressing development challenges affecting agriculture-dependent communities in Mozambique: rural poverty, food insecurity, and land degradation.
Sixty to eighty percent of annual precipitation in Mozambique falls during a single rainy season, meaning that rain-fed agriculture can only be practiced in a fraction of the year. Moreover, the country faces frequent floods and droughts, making yields highly volatile. Within this context, irrigation has the potential to dramatically improve yields.
