Project Overview

To implement an urgent set of measures in Sudan that will minimize and reverse the food insecurity and enhance adaptive capacity of small-scale farmers and pastoralists resulting from climate change, including variabilities in five vulnerable regions.

Project Results

76. In line with the UNDAF priorities, UNDP will focus on three key programme areas in Sudan as indicated the new UNDP and Sudan Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) (2009-2012) namely, (A) poverty reduction and achievement of MDGs; (B) democratic governance; and (C) crisis prevention and recovery. Particular attention will be accorded to crosscutting concerns: gender, peace and security, HIV/AIDS, environment, and applying a rights-based approach (CPAP 2009). Expecte...

76. In line with the UNDAF priorities, UNDP will focus on three key programme areas in Sudan as indicated the new UNDP and Sudan Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) (2009-2012) namely, (A) poverty reduction and achievement of MDGs; (B) democratic governance; and (C) crisis prevention and recovery. Particular attention will be accorded to crosscutting concerns: gender, peace and security, HIV/AIDS, environment, and applying a rights-based approach (CPAP 2009). Expected outcomes: 1. On the ground adaptation measures: Resilience of food-production systems and food-insecure communities enhanced in the face of climate change through the implementation of pilot adaptation measures in demonstration sites. 2. Institutional capacity strengthening: Institutional and individual capacities to implement climate risk management responses in the agriculture sector strengthened by capacity building to incorporate short term climate change risks into ongoing and future national development planning among local, regional and national NGOs, technical cooperation, Ministry of Agriculture, local governments and communities. 3. Knowledge: A better understanding of lessons learned and emerging best practices, captured and up-scaled at the national level by providing important lessons on what does and does not work in improving resilience of vulnerable communities in Sudan to increased climatic variability and climate change.
