Climate change is thought to be driving abnormal torrential downpours, flooding and changing weather patterns in the East Africa region. This has a negative impact on agricultural productivity, with potentially disastrous consequences in a country in which more than 80% of the population is engaged in subsistence agriculture. Harsher climatic conditions require offsetting by increased investments in both soil conservation and irrigation. However, without clear land rights, farmers are often reluctant to make such investments. In this context, GCCA funding was provided to support the implementation of an ambitious land registration programme.
