Developing Agro-Pastoral Shade Gardens in Djibouti

Djibouti faces multiple adverse effects due to climate change, which threaten large biophysical and socio-economic impacts. A priority area of concern is that of water availability, which is the main limiting factor of agricultural productivity and livelihood security.

Therefore, the objective of this project is to diversify and promote climate resilient agro-pastoral practices in rural Djibouti. This will be achieved by securing sustainable access to water resources, developing shade gardens to support diversified and climate-resilient agro-pastoral production systems, and securing access to finance for relevant income-generating activities.
