PRS Caatinga intends to achieve its objectives by:

Knowledge Generation on the Caatinga Biome

  • Support studies to expand the knowledge and understanding of the Caatinga biome. Results from these studies will contribute to the development of a capacity-building program that will be made available to the existing local technical assistance services and organizations, with the intent of updating their concepts and practices on low carbon rural technologies.

Sustainable Low Carbon Productive Arrangements

By strengthening capacities of local technical assistance providers:

  • Offering updated technical assistance to small and medium-size local farmers in adopting climate-smart technologies; and the provision of training and technical assistance to farmers and rural organization: training and technical assistance to farmers and their organizations to raise their awareness and knowledge about low carbon technologies and to support their adoption of these technologies.
  • Supporting value chains and access to markets: strengthen the capacities of small farmer organizations through the financing of collective benefits, such as water storage, seedling nurseries, small-scale storage facilities, and tools for compost production.

Creating a Sustainable Legacy in the Caatinga

  • Designing a Caatinga facility/fund: a financial mechanism, in form of a fund or facility, which would provide grants and credit to small and medium-sized farmers, aimed at ensuring project sustainability after its completion.
  • Engaging with strategic stakeholders: promote a network of associations, cooperatives, educational institutions, government and non-government institutions and players in the Caatinga, involving them in the project to create multiplying actions aimed at scaling up project results.
  • Disseminating knowledge and best practices: organization of workshops and seminars to share project results with academia, government and private sector, exchanges with technical and scientific institutions, and development of an online platform.
