Reducing livelihood vulnerability through Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) interventions in Ha Tinh

Ha Tinh is one of the provinces most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Common hazards include heatwaves and droughts, storms, heavy rains and flash floods, all of which cause soil erosion and agricultural damage. In cooperation with World Agroforestry (ICRAF), the SIPA project supports farmers to adapt to changing climate conditions with the objective of reducing vulnerability to loss and damage. To achieve this, SIPA has been supporting Ecosystem-based Adaptation with a focus on agroforestry systems with multiple benefits, such as reduction of soil erosion, reduced evaporation to maintain soil humidity, and income generation. The experiences gained during the project will be disseminated through cooperation between the SIPA project and the Ha Tinh Farmers Union, which was officially launched on 6 August with participants from the Farmers’ Union, district agricultural centres, and representatives from communes and ICRAF.

During the event, participants were introduced to technical information related to EbA-based agroforestry models, such as the compatibility of crops and trees, model design methods, and typical agroforestry models on steep and flat land. After the meeting, the participants visited demonstration plots.

A total of 1099 households in four districts — Huong Son, Can Loc, Huong Khe, and Ky Anh — participated in the programme. In total, 432 households in Huong Khe and Ky Anh received probiotics for composting as part of the fruit-tree growing activity.
