Summary Project document UNDP- IICA on GCCA project in Suriname. Climate change related events particularly excessive rainfall events and extended droughts are having a severe impact on agricultural production in Suriname.
The project seeks to strengthen the capacity of crop farmers and agricultural technicians in the use and management of protected agriculture and low cost water harvesting technologies to mitigate the negative impacts of erratic and excessive rainfall and extended drought periods. This will be achieved primarily through the establishment of training demonstration units for protected agriculture technologies and rain water harvesting, as well as theoretical and practical sessions on sustainable crop production and agronomy, with emphasis on cultural practices to mitigate the impacts of climate change events.
The project will also seek to strengthen cross border collaboration to develop complimentary knowledge areas to build the capacity of public sector institutions for improved service delivery to the agriculture sector
