Summary

The objective is to guarantee food security and contribute to the empowerment of rural communities in Gran Chaco, implementing strategies and technological tools (Kokue Mobile App) that allow mitigating the effect of climate change. Resilience is promoted according to agroecological principles, through workshops and accompaniment to producers of family-scale agroecological gardens, so that they improve their productivity, diversify their crops and thus generate surpluses for family businesses.

Challenge

In recent decades, the Gran Chaco region suffered strong human intervention, deforestation and desertification. Climate vulnerability studies foresee significant impacts in the next three decades, including extreme climatic events, droughts, soil erosion and floods. This is already affecting the 7.5 million inhabitants and their productive systems. Smallholder farmers are the most affected, suffering significant agricultural production losses, scarcity of water, river overflows and floods.

Solution

The project accompanies vulnerable families of small farmers in the Gran Chaco. The project provides technical advice, training on agriculture and resource management, and on ICTs to promote agroecology. In addition, the Kokue App is developed and promoted, available for the Android system, and its objective is to assist orchard producers in the management and monitoring of their crops to improve their productivity. In this way, surplus production can be marketed and improve economic income.

Long-Term Impact

Beneficiaries are expected to develop capabilities to adapt to climate change by implementing traditional techniques and agroecological measures. They will access to food security and nutrition, strengthening knowledge through the combination of technical field trainings and ITC solutions. Sustainable agriculture preserves diversity, improves soil resources, protects waterways, and decreases the dependence of smallholder families on external sources, adding value to ancestral practices.
