Key Result Area 1
Rural Livelihood and Resilience in High Climate Risk Areas Built
This KRA is ECOTRUST’s contribution to Sustainable Development Goal 13. It seeks to build the capacity of households, communities and their natural capital to prevent, mitigate or cope with risk, and recover from climate induced shocks. In addition, this Key result area contributes to Sustainable Development Goals 8 and 15.

Summary of Key Strategies
Increase community awareness on vulnerability, early warning, adaptation, and disaster risk reduction
Ecosystem Based adaptation is supporting smallholder farmers to adopt soil & water conservation activities
Community Visioning to identify sustainable long-term commercially viable initiatives / activities that suit community needs.
Farmers’ Voice Radio – To mitigate risks associated with natural disasters and build resilience of communities through engagement with experts over local radio.
Establishment of farmer field schools – To share experiences in adaptation strategies
Remote Sensing – To provide real time satellite data on the state of natural capital, linking to disaster risk reduction platforms.
Promote climate smart technologies and/or landscape level resource use practices
Agroforestry to build the resilience of smallholder farmers and their natural productive systems by increasing / maintaining woody biomass.
Restore and protect risk-prone communally accessed natural resources
Establish community-based conservation incentive and risk mitigation schemes
Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) as a business – providing smallholders with diversified income generation opportunities, as a reward for investing in sustainable practices
Payment for Environmental Services: Mobilizing Foreign Direct Investment in Smallholder – led Agroforestry through PES
Non – Cash Rewards: supporting participating farmers with capacity building, access to markets, affordable credit finance etc.
Influence landscape level by-laws on conservation and response to climate risk
Collaboration with district local governments to create stronger legal instruments to protect land and build the capacity of communities for understanding the benefits of their resources and need for the sustainable management.
Support formulation of community by-laws to address issues of, free grazing, loss of tree cover, conflict with protection agencies, forest encroachment, gender inequality, displacement etc. through.
- Consultations with district officials and community leaders
