1. Develop a diagnosis on damage and losses caused by natural disasters in agro-sylvo-pastoral and fisheries/aquaculture sectors of ECCAS Member States since 2010. This report should present on one hand types of damages and losses per types of natural hazards and highlight on the other hand the relative importance of products by value (export vs food security), and finally how the sectors (agriculture and fisheries/aquaculture) provided access to food and livelihoods during and after the disasters. This task will be undertaken thru a desk review and consultative interviews/ survey of the agriculture/fisheries and aquaculture and disaster risk management Focal Points of the Member States.
2. Prepare a guide on national and international existing mechanisms such as climate smart agriculture practices etc, based on good practices, to strengthen and build the livelihoods of rural populations affected by natural disasters in Member States.
3. Identify agro-sylvo-pastoral and fisheries/aquaculture sectors specific needs for hydrometeorological (Hydromet) services to build resilience and capacity to reduce the effects of natural disasters. This task will be completed by consultative interviews/ survey of the agriculture/fisheries and aquaculture focal points.
4. Based on the diagnosis, on identified mechanisms and sectoral Hydromet needs, propose recommendations for a resilient agriculture and building the livelihoods of rural populations affected by natural disasters in ECCAS region.
