It builds social capital, social ties, networks, and support which is associated with better project outcomes and community well-being. Participatory decision-making and accountability can also uncover and mobilize community assets, strengths, and resources that would have been otherwise overlooked.

Introduction

Climate change is an unprecedented threat to the livelihoods and subsequent food security of hundreds of millions of people, especially those who depend on small-scale agriculture for their livelihoods. Climate change affects agriculture and food security; and likewise, agriculture and natural resource management affect the climate system. These complex and dynamic relationships are also shaped by economic policies, political conflict and other factors such as the spread of infectious diseases.

Introduction

An effective project requires that the ideas for implementation have to be well thought out right from the outset. This therefore requires that a robust and evidence based project proposal must precede any project or program before implementation. No benefactor is ready to commit funds into your project unless you demonstrate competence with sufficient rigor while articulating your ideas in the proposal - backed by evidence that you have well constituted implementers (proposed staff competence).
