We acknowledge that the potential exists for those who work with programme participants to abuse their position of power.

Methodologies That Hear International (HI) Promotes
  • The Climate Resilient Agro-Ecosystems Model (CRAEM) developed by PELUM Uganda is a Community centered approach that systematically integrates various farm and off-farm practices selected and prioritized by the beneficiary communities to build resilience, increase agricultural production and contribute to Climate Change mitigation. It emphasizes practices and technologies within the means of beneficiaries such that they can be scaled out with minimum external interventions.  The prioritized practices are promoted holistically as one package to enable farmers get maximum benefits of adopting integrated practices as opposed to single practices.

CRAEM draws from the appreciation that farmers have a wealth of knowledge and experience in coping with extreme climatic variabilities and change, which if well integrated with new locally adapted and ecologically sound innovations could further strengthen adaptation and mitigation to climate change.

While promoting the model among the farmers, CRAEM emphasizes sustainability both in terms the practices promoted and the approaches used. The model emphasizes working with and strengthening community leadership structures to spearhead the implementation and scaling up of the model.
