Sustainable Coastal Restoration and Development for Somalia, Phase II

Creative Commons: Peter Prokosch

In Puntland, Somalia, the livelihoods of communities are under threat by climate change through increased droughts, storms, cyclones and floods. Future predicted rise in global temperature will lead to even greater variations in the climate, and thus, greater variability in impacts. By promoting sustainable natural resources management through rainwater harvesting and afforestation/reforestation, for both coastal and inland territories, there is an opportunity to build community resilience to withstand the climate extremes. 

This renewal grant will continue to fund the on-the-ground efforts of Adeso in Puntland, which includes providing an additional 10 solar irrigation systems to local farmers, and the re-planting of mangroves.
