Marginalised people who live below the lower poverty line and who are highly vulnerable to the consequences of climate change, establish climate-resilient and disaster-proof income generating activities and obtain access to social safety nets as well as to protective social networks in the form of village groups. This improves their immediate living conditions and - coupled with specific trainings - enables them to jointly address the consequences of climate change on local level through effective preparedness measures and adaptation strategies. On community level, the project mobilises other civil society actors and governmental authorities for effective disaster protection and climate-relevant risk management measures in the region and strengthens their capacities. The target group includes their perspectives into local development processes and conveys them to national political decision makers. The advocacy capacities of the local partner organisations are strengthened. Overall, the project sustainably strengthens the economic and social resilience as well as the adaptability to climate-related threats and natural disasters.
