The program appreciates the fact that weather patterns have significantly increased variability and unpredictability which presents a major threat to resource-dependent livelihoods in Uganda.
The most affected communities are farmers, pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and fisher folks. Frequent prolonged droughts and rainfall which is less regular has turned perennial rivers into seasonal rivers, and some water sources dry out during dry seasons.
The most at risk Ecosystems include the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs), wetlands and forest resources, and water resources with visible impacts on the cattle corridor of the country.
The main objective of the program is to empower communities on community based adaption and resilience to climate change impacts.
