In Sudan, harsh climatic conditions put pressure on agriculture and pastoralism. Climate change is a complicating factor. The EU and Red Cross / Red Crescent stand by the vulnerable Sudanese population and are committed to sustainable development for the country. Since 2014, through the EU-funded Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) they have been working together in Sudan to develop climate change adaptation techniques and improve food security, diversify livelihoods, reduce disaster risk and conflicts. This conference provides insights about the approach adopted, which integrates resilient natural resource management and techniques suitable to tough climatic conditions. The presentation shows practical examples on how to implement a comprehensive participatory process, ensuring the full involvement of communities.
