Asutifi district’s agriculture is at a crossroads. Changing climatic condition in Asutifi district has affected soil and water resources on agricultural land in many ways affecting food production.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
A changing climatic condition in Asutifi district has affected soil and water resources on agricultural land in many ways. This climate change has the potential to irreversibly damage the natural resource base on which local agriculture depends.” Climate change is increasing production risks in many local farming systems and reducing the ability of these farmers and rural communities to manage these risks on their own.
How will this project solve this problem?
Builds knowledge and awareness levels of climate change effects, adaptation strategies and mitigation measures to the most vulnerable to such effects. These are the smallholder farmers in villages who contribute much of our world's food requirements.
Potential Long Term Impact
Healthy soils present a solution to both droughts and floods by absorbing and storing water. An ecosystem approach to adaptation will ensure sustainability, cost-efficient adaptation solutions, biodiversity conservation and freshwater management
