According to the implementing agencies, this project seeks to increase resilience and improve livelihoods for the most vulnerable farmers in Guatemala, in the face of the impacts of climate change. Small producers of corn, beans, coffee, cocoa and home gardens will benefit. The project will promote drought resistant crop production systems through proven and validated adaptation measures. It will also be transformative in promoting the equitable representation of women and in enabling their economic empowerment and participation in decision-making.
The project will focus on the regions of the country that are most vulnerable to climate change, in 29 municipalities in the departments of Petén, Alta Verapaz, Baja Verapaz, Zacapa and Chiquimula.
The project's objectives will be achieved through three interrelated components:
• implement climate-resilient agricultural practices and improve farmers' livelihoods.
• support efficient water management for agriculture in order to reduce the impact of water scarcity.
• Facilitate conditions for climate-resilient livelihoods, including strengthening institutional systems and transferring knowledge at the national, sub-national and local levels.
