Project Description
The project will assess and document local and indigenous perceptions and voices on climate change (mainly floods and droughts) impacts, implications and responses. It will draw from and build on an ongoing social research process (known locally as Sala Phoum). This research and the practical experience gained will be used alongside farmer to farmer exchanges, and other participatory approaches to the construction and communication of indigenous knowledge e.g., through the development of community produced media (such as Participatory Video), alongside the implementation of pilot adaptation responses. These pilot adaptations are derived from the vulnerability assessment, and in particular those which link to the priority VRA outcomes of 1) production enhancements, 2) information/knowledge improvements and 3) institutional strengthening. The project partners (and local authorities such as commune councilors) will then work with communities to develop village adaptation strategies which will then be discussed at commune council, district and higher administrative planning and policy levels. Outputs will be shared across and between communities, local authorities and local and international development partners and practitioners through existing local, national and international networks. Efforts to link into local planning processes such as the CDP will be a high priority, as will efforts to mainstream ecologically sustainable climate smart thinking and strategies locally, through ongoing and future long term support to the project partners, thus ensuring sustainability and greater impact. 4.1 Objective, Outcomes, expected outputs General Objective: To reduce vulnerability and increase resilience and responsiveness to floods and droughts through production (/ecosystem) enhancements, information (/knowledge) improvements and institutional development (/strengthening). Specific objectives: 1. Reduced vulnerability and increased adaptive capacity through productive and ecosystem improvements 2. Information and knowledge management system in place to share with other communities and wider stakeholders. 3. Community groups are established and strengthened to manage and mitigate risks and are linked to district/provincial level committees. Expected outcomes: 1.1. Production increased through more resilient aquatic agricultural production (AAS) systems; 1.2 Ecosystem approach adopted for local biodiversity conservation; 1.3 Increased adaptive capacities in target communities; 2.1 Communities have skills in participatory research and communication enabling information collection and knowledge sharing; 3.1 Community groups are more able to manage and mitigate climate change risks; 3.2 Better informed local institutions with regards to climate change and adaptation; 3.3 Community to district and province links are improved with regards to climate change Expected outputs: 1.1.1. 60 households (20 hhs in Stung Treng and 40 hhs in Ratanakiri) have access to fish for food or sale through cement ring aquaculture; 1.1.2. 80 households (40 hhs in Stung Treng and 40 hhs in Ratanakiri) with improved access to clean water; 1.1.3. 70 households (30 hhs in Stung Treng and 40 hhs in Ratanakiri) have access to agricultural products for household consumption or sale through home gardening; 1.1.4. 60 households (20 hhs in Stung Treng and 40 hhs in Ratanakiri) with improved access to wild captured fisheries for food or sale through sustainable approaches to natural aquatic resources management and livelihood intervention activities; 1.2.1 X 100Ms of riverbank stabilized through bamboo planting; 1.2.2 X km of stream designated and protected as fish refugia with cement ring and community based protective management regime; 1.3.1 X Number of households trained and applied farmer field school for adaptation to climate change; 2.1.1 All community groups able to conduct participatory research and able to communicate findings effectively; 2.1.2 All communities are able to access and share information on climate change within community and outsiders; 2.1.3. At least 2 community groups have produced participatory videos documenting experiences to climate change; 3.1.1. X Number of disaster risk management committees established; 3.1.2. All disaster risk management committees trained in adaptation and mitigation approaches; 3.2.1 X Number of events organized to communicate findings and raise awareness to climate and CBA initiatives; 3.3.1.X Number of district or provincial events or meetings attended by community groups; 3.3.2 X Number of events organized by communities that district or provincial authorities attend. Activities: Mobilization of interested poor households to participate in the cement ring fish raising; Provision of training on cement ring fish raising including study tour to ATSA site; Installation of cement rings; Implementation of cement rings fish raising; Follow up support for the cement ring fish production; Awareness raising on household safe use of water at community level; Provision of improved household rainwater harvesting and storage facilities; Mobilization for participation of interested household in home gardening productions; Identification with families and agriculture experts of appropriate vegetable gardening system; Implementation of home gardening; Follow up support for home gardening; Strengthen of fishe
