Climate change adaptation strategies exp fair presentation from uganda

  1. 1. Experience from Uganda Content of Presentations • Introduction • Climate Change Adaptation Strategies • Key Project/Intervention areas • Coordination Framework • Challenges to Scaling up climate change Resilience
  2. 2. Introduction • Climate change is affecting the whole value chains of crops, livestock and fisheries in Uganda • Manifestations: Floods, dry spells and drought, extreme temperatures, Hailstorms, unpredictable rainfall patterns • Effects: High crop and livestock losses, Degrading grazing and cropping lands, Drying of water points, Increased wild fire outbreaks, Increased pests and diseases in crops/livestock and human • Impacts: Food insecurity and malnutrition, Reduced incomes and increased poverty, Reduction of biodiversity and water levels, Increased morbidity and mortalities.
  3. 3. Adaptation Strategies Promotion of Climate Smart Agriculture Program whose vision is to have “A climate resilient and low carbon agriculture and food systems contributing to increased food security, wealth and sustainable economic growth in line with the National Vision 2040.” Major adaptation strategies include: • Mainstreaming climate change issues into policy frameworks • Creation of Climate change task force • Increased land under tree crops (Citrus, coffee, Cocoa, oil palm) • Climate smart practices (conservation farming, Agro-forestry, etc) • Improved watershed management • Rain water harvesting • Promotion of water for production (irrigation schemes, Valley dams) • Development and testing of climate resilient crop varieties • Capacity building of relevant stakeholders
  4. 4. Key Project Intervention areas Major projects : (PRELNOR, VODP2, NUSAF3, OWC ….) • Installation of Weather Stations (Automatic and Synoptic) • Promotion of Community Based Natural Resources Management initiatives • Putting in place strong network of Agricultural Extension Staff • Support to PHH and Value addition initiatives • Promotion of Climate Smart Agricultural Technologies and Practices • Support to local seed Multiplication • Building climate resilient Community Access Roads • Support to institutions to put install lightening arrestors • Immunization against major diseases (livestock and Human) • Provision of climate resilient crop varieties and livestock species
  5. 5. Coordination Framework MAAIF/ CSA COORDINATION UNIT CLIMATE SMART AGRICULTURE TASKFORCE DISTRICT CSA COORDINATORS/ DISTRICT CSA TASKFORCE (PRODUCTION & NATURAL RESOURCES) SUB COUNTY EXTENSION LINK PERSONS CSA COMMUNITY GROUPS
  6. 6. Challenges to scaling up Climate Change resilience • Limited options/research on climate resilient crops and animal breeds • Limited funds for implementation of climate change adaptation options • Farmers are reluctant towards use of new innovations • Lack of relevant information e.g risks, technologies • Low levels of skills and capacity • Poor access to finance, high interest rates and the poor culture of managing credit. • High start-up costs for physical technologies • Counterfeit products on the market • Dependence on the market for crop inputs e.g improved seeds • Low capacity for maintenance of physical technologies
