Up-scaling Climate Smart Agricultural Practices

This component supports interventions that promote adoption of improved agricultural Technologies,  Innovations, and Management Practices (TIMPs) to achieve increased productivity and  enhance copying mechanisms to climate change risks among beneficiaries. It is implemented through three sub-components:

  • Building Institutional Capacity and Strengthening Service Delivery

This sub-component supports institutional capacity building at county, ward, and community levels to plan, implement, and monitor ward/county sub-projects as well as  community micro-projects.

  • Supporting  Investments in Smallholder Agro-pastoral Production systems

This sub-component supports community micro-projects identified through community participation in seventeen semi-arid and medium to high potential project counties. This includes improving water and soil investments, promoting livelihood and crop diversification, dairy farming and agro-forestry as well as  small scale farmer managed irrigation schemes.
