Building the Resilience Rural Women in climate-smart farming and livelihood enterprises development in Tainso, Kyingakrom and Teselema in the Black Volta Basin
This project seeks to provide women farmers with basic skills to enhance climate smart agriculture within the traditional area. Climate smart agriculture is not being viewed in isolation but part of the equation; an integral part of a systemic and inclusive agenda to transform farming in rural communities. It will not be limited to food security alone, but also direct measures are taken to counter detrimental climate effects. Climate smart agriculture agricultural practice that reduces exposure, sensitivity or vulnerability to climate variability or change (for example, water harvesting, terracing, mulching, drought-tolerant crops, index insurances, village savings) is also climate-smart because they enhance farmers’ ability to cope with weather extremes. Likewise, agricultural practices that sequester carbon from the atmosphere like agroforestry, and minimum tillage will be introduced to reduce agricultural emissions.

1.3.2 Project objectives
i. To build capacities of rural women to establish climate smart farms to enable the farmers produce reliable harvest and increase yield.
ii. To support the women to invest in climate smart livelihood options in apiculture, small ruminant rearing and all year vegetable production.
The implementation of the project will produce two main outputs as follows:

? 60 rural women farmers supported to invest in climate smart farms and would be practicing dry season farming technologies including soil and water conservation management and bulking of horticulture crop seed and cultivation of climate resistant crops
? 10 ha climate smart farms established and managed by women farmers for reliable harvest and increased yield.
