Abstract

The vulnerability of African agriculture to climate change creates key tasks of promoting agricultural adaptations and adaptive capacity in agriculture, and embracing opportunities for low-carbon development in agriculture. Agricultural research services, and agricultural advisory services, will be key actors in this work. This report synthesises findings from the project Climate Learning for African Agriculture, assessing how African agricultural research and advisory services are taking account of climate issues in their policies and practices, and how they can better do so in future. The project worked both at a regional level and through case studies in Sierra Leone, Benin, Uganda and Mozambique, with a strong emphasis on shared learning through national- and local-level workshops.
