Project description

The objective of the proposed project is to enhance the livelihoods of the small-scale farmers and pastoralists living in the Kofirnighan River Basin (KRB) under future climate change conditions. Three interrelated outcomes within the project will contribute to achieving this objective, namely: i) catchment management strategy to manage climate risks operationalised at raion and jamoat levels in the KRB; ii) an integrated approach to building the climate resilience of agro-ecological landscapes operationalised at a village level; and iii) existing knowledge management platforms supported for integrated catchment management and EbA.
