Adaptation models for climate-smart practices to be developed (CCAFS)

Researchers visited climate-smart villages around Lushoto, Tanzania in June to begin the process of local knowledge gathering from farmers and experts to create Climate-Smart Agriculture packages of practices.

A team of CIAT DAPA (International Center for Tropical Agriculture Decision and Policy Analysis Program) and Soils researchers visited the CCAFS Climate-Smart Village in Northern Tanzania to begin work aiming to produce a model for adaptation of CSA practices, ultimately scalable across similar agro-ecological areas in the country. Farmer and local expert knowledge will be integral in designing and effectively implementing fully informed, locally appropriate adaptation models to ensure long term, climate-smart, sustainable benefits.

These objectives are part of several new projects in the region including ;

  • IFAD funded research ; ‘Increasing Food Security and Farming System Resilience in East Africa through Wide-Scale Adoption of Climate-Smart Agriculture Practices’
  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded research ; ‘Grand Challenges Explorations Round 12. Less is More : The 5Q Approach’
  • OFID funded research ; ‘Climate Smart Technologies and Practices : Using Science Knowledge and Expert Feedback to Accelerate Local Adoption’
  • CCAFS’s Flagship 4 (FP4) research on ‘Influencing and Linking Policies and Institutions from National to Local Level for the Development and Adoption of Climate-Resilient Food Systems’
