Responding To Climate Change In Mozambique, Phase III – Agricultural Pilot Project Implementation

Under Phase II of the INGC climate change projects in Mozambique a proposal for adapted agricultural water management under climate change conditions has been developed. The proposed measures aim at sourcing and utilising alternative water resources as well as adjusted management options and include shallow well drilling, the introduction of small motor pumps, zero tillage approaches and the introduction of smallholder irrigation systems.

Actual services provided by our staff within the assignment:
