Government of Jamaica Adaptation Fund Programme


Name of Entity: 
Planning Institute of Jamaica/Rural Agriculture Development Agency (RADA)

Brief Description: 

MSMEs in the agricultural sector are constantly at risk due to potential consequences of climate change on their crops. Many of these MSMEs farmers operate with small plot sizes on very hilly terrains. The Adaptation Fund (implemented through the Planning Institute of Jamaica) was therefore formulated to assist MSMEs in the agricultural sector to:

  • Enhance food security in vulnerable communities by strengthening coastal protection;
  • Improve land and water management for their holdings;
  • Build capacity for climate change adaptation

The Fund provides assistance to MSME farm business operators.

Benefits: 

Assistance is being provided for:

  • Establishing production and productivity programmes using climate-smart agriculture
  • Implementation of rainwater harvesting and small scale drip irrigation systems;
  • Establishing and rehabilitating of infrastructure for soil conservation and protection.
