The Resilience Strategy implemented by FAO and the Government of Lesotho promotes an integrated set of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) technologies and practices among Lesotho population. The Resilience Strategy is integrated by three complementary programmes designed to optimize the adoption of CSA among different target groups:
1. Emergency and Resilience Programme (ERP)
2. Climate Smart Agriculture for All (CSA4ALL)
3. Social Protection through Production and Nutrition (SPPN)
The combined implementation of these three programmes allows to adapt FAO support to the different stakeholders involved from the poorest of the poor (SPPN), subsistence farmers (ERP) to commercially oriented farmers, primary and secondary school students, teachers, extension staff, chiefs, local representatives and public in general (CSA4ALL).
A well-known African proverb says: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. We believe so. In complex contexts impact cannot be achieved in isolation. FAO Lesotho Resilience Strategy is inclusive, implemented jointly by FAO and the Government of Lesotho in coordination with state structures, UN Agencies, NGOs and socially-committed private sector.
