Women, youth and other vulnerable groups are set to benefit from a newly proposed project that seeks to address challenges caused by climate change in the country.
Gender Climate Change and Agriculture Support Programme (GCCASP) will focus on empowering women, especially those involved in agriculture, by putting in place early warning mechanisms to mitigate climate effects.
The five-year project is spearheaded by the New Partnership for Africa's Development (Nepad), established to fight poverty in Africa. It will be financed by Norwegian government. The budget is yet to be drawn.
