Southern African Development Community (SADC) Adaptation to Climate Change in Rural Areas in southern Africa (ACCRA)

Southern African Development Community (SADC)

Titre Southern African Development Community (SADC) Adaptation to Climate Change in Rural Areas in southern Africa (ACCRA)

Pays/Region : Southern African Development Community (SADC) Member States

Durée : 2015 to 2020

Commissioned by : German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

Agence d’exécution : SADC Secretariat

Contexte
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) region is strongly affected by the impacts of climate change. Extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and cyclones reduce and threaten agricultural productivity and, according to climate scenarios, their frequency and intensity will continue to increase. This presents a serious threat to food security and livelihoods, particularly among poor segments of the population in rural areas. The Centre for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA) is the programme’s implementation partner and coordinates agricultural research and development in the SADC region.

Objectifs
CCARDESA has increased the capacities of SADC member states to integrate climate change aspects into agricultural programmes and investments

Approche
The programme supports the implementation of climate-relevant elements of the SADC Regional Agricultural Policy and strengthens the the capacity of CCARDESA to act as a knowledge broker, coordinator and moderator for agricultural research and development.

The programme’s action areas are : 1. Regional dissemination of knowledge for climate change adaptation in agriculture and climate-smart agriculture 2. Capacity building to climate-proof agricultural value chains 3. Capacity building to access climate finance
