Ecosystem-Based Adaptation in Sudan 2017-2020

17 September 2019

UNEP is helping the government of Sudan to build climate resilience among smallholder rainfed farmers and pastoralists (SRFPs) in the White Nile State. The project’s main approach is ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA), which involves protecting and restoring healthy ecosystems. EbA is proven to be highly cost-effective for withstanding extreme weather, and 80% of Sudan’s population directly depend on ecosystem services for their livelihoods.
