Abstract:

The Namibia Conservation Agriculture Project (NCAP) 2 - Building Adaptive Capacities and Climate Change Resilience for Improved Food Security for Smallholder Farmers in Northern Namibia will build on productive interventions undertaken in the communal land areas of Na-mibia's seven northern crop-growing regions to work with small-scale and subsistence farmers (mostly women) who depend entirely upon the climate for rain-fed agricultural production of staple grains for income and household food security. Farmers in these areas typically utilise maladaptive farming practices ill-suited to climate change adaptation, which results in low yields, hunger, poverty and increasing vulnerability to climate change impacts, such as the alternating threats of droughts and floods.
