Namibia: Climate Change Projects Lined Up
The Environmental Investment Fund of Namibia will this month launch two projects aimed at enhancing rural agriculture and community-based natural resources management resilience to climate change.
These projects are the climate resilient agriculture project in three vulnerable extreme (CRAVE) northern crop-growing regions and the empower to adapt project, which both received N$300 million funding from the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
The EIF said in a statement the two projects will be implemented in the Kavango West, Kavango East and Zambezi regions with the aim of reducing the vulnerability of rural communities to climate change threats while increasing the adaptive capacity and resilience of small-scale crop farmers. The project will be implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry and will run for five years.
