Climate Resilient Agriculture

 

 

        This component will support climate-resilient approaches that allows for the sustainable use of the natural resource base through agricultural and livestock production systems aiming to increase long term productivity and farm incomes in an environment marked by increased climate and, in particular, rainfall variability. More specifically, this component will support measures that improve:

(a)  Harvest, capture, collection, delivery and distribution of water for agriculture and livestock purposes in surface water irrigated canal command areas, ground water sources and rain fed areas.

(b)  On-farm water use efficiency.

(c)  Soil moisture and fertility improvements.

(d)  Sustainable intensification and diversification of farm production.

(e)  Integrated crop and livestock farming systems.
