Project Description
The development objective of the Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Climate Change Project for Uruguay is to support Uruguay’s efforts to promote farmer adoption of improved environmentally sustainable agricultural and livestock practices that are climate smart. The additional financing (AF) will help in: alignment with country and bank agendas and priorities; scaling-up the development effectiveness of the sustainable management of natural resources and climate change project; piloting new technologies and presenting innovations in climate-smart practices; and consolidate and scale up the current activities, operational approach, and procedures and allow for continuity in the ongoing project. The AF presents to increase the development impact of the original loan, by expanding current investments to enhance the resilience of family farming, such as small-scale irrigation and management of animal waste in the country's watersheds, as well as by including new activities, such as the improvement of grazing areas. The AF will build on activities executed under the original loan that have been shown to effectively promote farmer adoption of improved environmentally sustainable and climate-smart agriculture and livestock practices.
