Summary

The project is aimed to mitigate the impact of climate change in rural communities by using agroecological measures including the diversification of agro-ecosystems in the form of polycultures and agroforestry systems accompanied by organic soil management, water conservation and harvesting, and the enhancement of agrobiodiversity. ICT will be used to bridge the gap between urban and rural areas and, to overcome rural isolation, reduce high mobility costs and facilitate the flow of knowledge.

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 benefits 1.090 smallholder farmers' families (5.000 people) of 6 argentine provinces, Bolivia and Paraguay. The majority of them are multidimensionally poor, lacking access to clean water, adequate nutrition, housing, assets and education. Some are of Creole origin; others belong to indigenous ethnic groups. The project will provide technical advice, equipment for harvesting, water solutions, and ITC to promote agroecological harvesting, climate change decision making and trading.

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.
