VICCA-FIN Project

Year: 2016
Country: Zambia

Project Description

Climate change has led to political and economic instability throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, presenting a serious threat to the environment and regional security. This project seeks to develop the capacity of Zambian farmers to respond to the threat of climate change, enabling them to maintain sustainable, independent, profitable agricultural operations while also allowing them to meet the dietary and nutritional needs of the surrounding community. Participants will be trained in farming best practices and given the option to cultivate drought-resistant cultivars of popular crops (such as bananas).
