Egypt Country content en Adapting to climate change and building resilience in food security in Southern Egypt Heba and Adel are two of many smallholder farmers in the village of Mansouria in Upper Egypt’s Aswan governorate whose lives have been affected by climate change. Intense heat and strong winds have, in the past, led to substantial decrease in wheat production. Wheat is the region’s staple crop and the cornerstone of many livelihoods, leaving many households vulnerable to food insecurity and loss of income. To help farmers adapt, WFP is implementing a four-year project aimed at improving the capacity of farmers like Heba and Adel to adapt to anticipated reductions in food production from climate change and to build institutional capacity at all levels.
