Resilience and integrated management of environmental risks for agricultural production

Project Name: 
Resilience and integrated management of environmental risks for agricultural production
Countries/Regions: 
All
General Purpose
Increase the resilience of the agricultural systems of the member countries to the many risks related to climate change and the environment, based on the principles of integrated natural resource management and sustainable agricultural practices.
Specific Objectives

1.    Contribute to the resilience of the agricultural sector by strengthening the Member States’ institutional frameworks and capabilities for adapting to climate change and managing their natural resources. 
2.    Strengthen the Member States’ institutional frameworks and capabilities to equip them to anticipate, be prepared for, react to, and recover from environmental risks (external events) that can affect agricultural production and the well-being of agricultural producers. 
3.    Strengthen the countries’ institutional frameworks and capabilities for the integrated management of animal and plant health risks, with a view to making agriculture more resilient.
4.    Strengthen the public and private sectors’ institutional framework and capabilities for implementing actions aimed at sustainable soil management, and making more efficient use of water for agricultural production.
 

Expected Results

•    IICA’s Member States have acquired new knowledge related to the design and management of plans, policies, and actions aimed at making production systems more resilient to climate change.
•    IICA’s member countries have institutions and capabilities for implementing policies and programs designed to make production systems more resilient to climate change.
