Objectives and outcomes

The program’s main objectives are to increase the productivity of barley-livestock agricultural systems while strengthening climate change resilience among targeted rural communities. This will ultimately lead to improved food security, higher incomes, and more productive livelihoods for farmers and their families.

Objectives will be achieved in two main ways: enhancing national and community-level awareness about the expected detrimental impacts of climate change, and extending ready-to-use options and technologies that help vulnerable rural communities adapt to climate variability and implement effective responses.

Farmers who adopt recommended technologies and sustainable management practices can expect a 20 per cent increase return on their investments, and a 40 per cent increase in annual barley production.
