Strategic Programme Areas
Climate change affects four dimensions of food security including food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food systems stability. It has an impact on human health, livelihood assets, food production and natural resources availability. Climate change impacts will be both short term, resulting from more frequent and more intense extreme weather events, and long term, caused by changing temperatures and precipitation patterns. People who are already vulnerable and food insecure are likely to be the first affected. Agriculture-based livelihood systems that are already vulnerable to food insecurity face immediate risk of increased crop failure, new patterns of pests and diseases, lack of appropriate seeds and planting material, and loss of livestock.
The program seeks to build better agricultural practices and conflict resolution capacity by providing capacity building opportunities and policy interventions for interactive conflict resolutions and reconciliation in areas where there has been environmental threats such water scarcity, droughts, competition over land for grazing and farming and poverty.
