The project aims to develop awareness and promote better adaptation of pysmies to climate change. It will specifically seek the opinion of pygmies on their perception of climate change to give them the opportunity to discuss their major impact in their lives and coping methods. They will be able to articulate their expectations for actions to consider in order to increase their resilience.

This project will gather “oral histories” on local-level memories of climate variability and climate change as a proxy to obtaining meteorological and other environmental data. The project will also capture local perceptions and indigenous knowledge about environmental adaptation that have occurred over three and a half decades of conflict.

Summary: The Western Cape is a valuable agricultural area and is experiencing increasing competition for water from agricultural and urban use. Projections suggest a future reduction in rainfall. This project integrates seasonal climate variability with decadal forecasts and long-term scenarios. It features a previously tested model, stakeholder engagement and capacity-building in order to better integrate information on climate change and variability into water resources policy and management

Summary: This project is intending to develop with small scale farmers, appropriate manure out of oilcake of Jatropha curcas in order to: a) enhance millet productivity; b) reduce soil moisture stress and c) better control soil temperature variation. For this purpose participatory approach is adopted to compare the effects of two fertilizers and 5 methods of fertilizer application. Measurements on soil moisture and soil temperature variation are carried out and millet agronomic parameters as well.

Associated Organization: University of Marrakesh and CDRT (NGO)
Summary: A methodology will be developed that combines strong ground- and remote sensing based data layers including climate data and socio-economic attributes to assess risk-levels of climate change (CC) potential vulnerabilities and their consequences at local and sub-regional scales for time horizons extending the next 10-15 years. Results will provide detailed adapted analysis into local to regional CC and important metrics required as input for mapping vulnerability and risk based on changes in surface energy, carbon and water balances in large regions of Southern Morocco.
