This 63 page report on the project titled “Strengthening Livelihoods through Community Adaptation and Learning (SLCAL)” aimed at “Strengthening the livelihood and security of vulnerable, food insecure and exposed to multiple risks Palestinian communities by building their capacity to adapt to climate variability and longer term of change”. The project targeted 26 communities and 1,300 farming households from West Bank and Gaza strip over an implementation period of four years.

The project is built upon four main programs:

• Rangelands Improvement Program
• Irrigation Techniques Program
• Agro Practices Program

Impact Evaluation of Climate Change Adaptation for Resilient Small Scale Tea Production Project

The objective of the proposed study is to assess the impact of the climate change adaptation for resilient small scale tea production project with respect to set indicators for improved tea production and make recommendations.

The study had covered 30 percent of the impact population covered under the project for data collection. 150 tribal tea farming households out of 500 tea farmers and 33 hamlets out of 76 hamlets were covered. The desk review of project reports, documents, IEC materials and in depth interview with project staff involved in project development and implementation, physical verification of farms for adoption of best practices using a check list and taking photographs, in-Depth interview with key stakeholders like UPASI, Tea board members and other government line departments involved in the project, structured Interview with the tribal farmer, household members who are members of VLG, received trainings, participated in the programs like demonstration plots, adopted best practices, focused group discussion with VLG male and female members separately to identify challenges faced in adopting the best practices were done as part of the study.

The Canadian support for the Food Sufficiency for Farmers (FSF) project will come to an end on October 31, 2018, and now it is the interest of the Global Affairs Canada (GAC) to commission this summative evaluation for the purpose of:
• Identifying best practices and approaches that can be built on to inform improvements to the implementation of the Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) livelihood components; and
• Informing areas where the FSF project has achieved its results and the level of sustainability of the project results.

Rapport d’Evaluation Finale Du Projet Mahafatoky CARE Antalaha

CARE Madagascar a mis en œuvre un projet qui s’intitule MAHAFATOKY dont l’objectif est d’accroître la résilience de 50.000 ménages dans les deux districts côtiers de la Région SAVA. Généralement, les actions tournent autour des renforcements de capacités pour que la population cible, notamment les plus vulnérables, s’adapte à réduire les effets néfastes du changement climatique sur leur sécurité alimentaire. L’objectif du projet Mahafatoky est de renforcer la résilience des 50 000 ménages dans les deux districts côtiers de la Région SAVA à Madagascar, par une plus grande capacité à s’adapter aux effets du changement sur leur sécurité alimentaire et à réduire ces effets. Le projet comprend trois volets essentiels et complémentaires : i) La Gestion des risques et des catastrophes, ii) La sécurité alimentaire et iii) Le groupe d’épargne villageois. Ces trois volets se répartissent en sept (7) résultats attendus (RA) dont les analyses des valeurs actuelles de chaque indicateur sont développées dans ce rapport. Au terme du projet, les bénéficiaires finaux du projet sont de 73 032 ménages soit 365.160 personnes qui représentent 146% de l’objectif fixé. Read More...

Where the Rain Falls Phase III Baseline Study

Bangladesh is frequently cited as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change (Huq and Ayers, 2007) because of its disadvantageous geographic location; flat and low-lying topography; high population density; high levels of poverty; reliance of many livelihoods on climate sensitive sectors, particularly agriculture and fisheries; and inefficient institutional aspects (CCC, 2006). Considering the above scenarios of climate change risks and as a part of initiative to address the effect of climate change, CARE Bangladesh has started implementing the project “Where the Rain Falls (WtRF III)”generously funded by Prince Albert Foundation. The project is mainly based on Community Based Adaptation (CBA) and aims at improving the resilience of targeted vulnerable and marginalized communities to the impacts of increasing variability of rainfall patterns by promoting SuPER (Sustainable, Profitable, Equitable and Resilient) agriculture approach. CARE has been implementing the WtRF project in Kurigram district since January 2014 and WtRF Phase III which started from January 2017has built on the earlier phase of the project. The WtRF Phase III project focuses on climate resilient agriculture and targets 6,500 small and marginalized farmers in 20 villages (2,500 from previous phase in 5 villages and an additional 4,000 small and marginalized farmers from additional 15 villages in Kurigram).

Urban Socio-Economic and Vulnerability Study of Gazipur City Corporation

Between March 2014 and June 2014, CARE Bangladesh undertook a qualitative study to understand the risks and vulnerabilities for residents of two unplanned settlements or slums1 within the newly formed Gazipur City Corporation. The exercise mapped risks, identified areas of vulnerability, and worked to understand mechanisms being used by communities to cope with adverse events. A survey was also designed for the two studied communities, identifying service shortfalls that reduced resilience to cope with both seasonal and unexpected manmade and natural disasters. [49 pages]
