Project Coordinator at Food and Agriculture Organization

Organizational Setting

The Scaling up Climate Resilience Agriculture Project in Agro-ecological Region I & II (SCRALA) project supports the Government of Zambia to strengthen the resilience to climate change risks of vulnerable smallholder farmers in the country’s Agro-Ecological Regions I and II. These regions are facing increasing risks as a result of climate change, primarily variability of rainfall and increased frequency of droughts, which have direct impacts on the agricultural production in these regions.

Within the two Agro-Ecological Regions, smallholder farmers in the five provinces (namely, Eastern, Lusaka, Muchinga, Southern and Western) will be directly targeted by the project, specifically including the following 16 districts: Mambwe, Nyimba, Chongwe, Luangwa, Chirundu, Rufunsa, Chama, Mafinga, Kazungula, Siavonga, Gwembe, Namwala, Shangombo, Senanga, Sesheke and Mulobezi. The direct beneficiaries will represent approximately 946,153 people.

The project aims to increase the resilience to climate change risks of smallholder farmers in target Agro-Ecological Regions. The project will make targeted interventions to capitalize on opportunities to strengthen and promote viable climate-resilient value chains relating to smallholder agriculture in the target regions, specifically targeting value chains that are gender sensitive and provide viable economic opportunities for women.

There three interrelated project outputs: 1) strengthening capacity of farmers to plan for climate risk; 2) strengthening resilient agricultural production and diversification practices (for both food security and income generation); and 3) strengthening farmers’ access to markets and commercialization of introduced resilient agricultural commodities.

FAO will contribute to the Output 2: Resilient agricultural livelihoods are promoted in the face of changing rainfall, increasing drought and occasional floods.

With better planning for and management of climate risk, farmers will be supported to be in an improved position to adapt to climate change by managing water more sustainably, introducing new agricultural practices, adopting new varieties of crops and pursuing alternative livelihoods.

This will be built on the successful model of farmer field schools, which provide local, context-specific centres where farmers can share experiences with other farmers and continue to receive technical support from extension workers and other experts. Learning centres of excellence will also be established at the district level to promote scaling up and enhance replication to other camps throughout the district.

Reporting Lines

Under the overall supervision of the FAOR, Technical supervision of the National Technical Coordinator and the technical guidance of relevant technical units in FAO and in close collaboration with the National Project Coordinator (NPC) of the Ministry of Agriculture, UNDP project Manager, District Agricultural Coordinators, FAO Lead Technical Officer (LTO) and other project staff and partner agencies.
