From Africa to Asia and Back Again: Testing Adaptation in Flood-based Livelihood Systems

The project from Africa to Asia and Back Again: Testing Adaptation in Flood-based Livelihood Systems is currently the main project of the FBLN. The project main objective is to solidify the know-how on flood-based livelihood systems (FBLS) by upscaling the knowledge-base both geographically and content wise. It is expected that the project will contribute to the building-up of practical knowledge and national and local capacity to systematically and comprehensively support the productive use of all the various types of FBLS through the following 4 components:

  1. FBL network establishment and strengthening (by creating a country database of WUAs, newsletter, cross-country farmers knowledge sharing, developing tailor made training to selected farmer groups/WUAs and developing and disseminating knowledge products in local languages)
  2. Knowledge development and solution management (by developing practical notes and other communication products on cross-country relevant research themes: water governance and conflict mitigation, management of soil moisture and fertility and improvement of water diversion and distribution efficiency, conducting solution-oriented research programmes and developing guidelines)
  3. Capacity building (by consolidating existing MSc programmes, leadership programme, internship programme, regional courses and establishing farmer learning centres)
  4. Support to investment programmes and policies (by writing of investment proposals and linking with partners)
