Interventionens mål er at styrke LVCs regionale gren i det sydøstlige Afrika i deres kamp for klimaretfærdighed. LVC arbejder på globalt plan for at promovere agroøkologi og madsuvernænitet, som småbønders løsninger på klimakrisen og agroindustriens dominans. I den sydøstlige gren (LVC SEAf) er mulighederne for udførelse ikke så stærk som i de øvrige regioner, og der er mangel på dokumentation af småbønders forværrede kår grundet klimaforandringer, hvilket stiller medlemsbasen svagt i henhold til fortalervirksomhed. Interventionen sigter på at dokumentere og opbygge medlemmernes vidensbase omkring klimaforandringer. Dernæst søger interventionen at opbygge LVC SEAf internt med henblik på en styrket fortalervirksomhedsindsats, særligt i regionale beslutningsprocesser i SADC. Den primære målgruppe er LVC SEAfs medlemsorganisationer, hvor indsatsen vil gavne ca. 1.250.000 mennesker.
