BUILDING LIVELIHOODS AND RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN EAST AND WEST AFRICA

Climate Change Resilience

Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR)
Research program : Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)

Titre : BUILDING LIVELIHOODS AND RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN EAST AND WEST AFRICA

Régions/Pays : East Africa (Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia) and West Africa (Mali, Senegal, Niger and Ghana)

Date  : 2019 -2021

Descriptif
The goal of this project is to build livelihoods and improve resilience to climate change of smallholder farmers of East Africa (Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia) and West Africa (Mali, Senegal, Niger and Ghana) through the large-scale adoption of CSA technologies and practices.
This project tackles many of the issues central to IFAD’s strategy - driving transformation in agriculture and tackling the root causes of climate change, youth unemployment, gender inequality and shortfalls in nutrition around the world.
This EU-IFAD project looks at value chains and how we can enhance market access for women and young people through innovative methods (such as digital agriculture) and the examination of CSA technology and practices through a gender lens.

Activités
Output 1 : Five technological or institutional CSA options that can be scaled up with smallholder farmers in Ethiopia * Identification of CSA options for the rehabilitation of degraded landscapes and ecosystems, and the enhancement of farmer resilience * Assessment of CSA options in Climate-Smart Villages (CSVs)

Output 2 : Five technological or institutional options that can be scaled up with value chain actors in West Africa :: * Analysis of climate-smart crop value chains * Mainstreaming of evidence-based CSA options within the selected value chains

Output 3 : Enhanced climate information services and big data solutions to enhance smallholder production for value chains in West Africa * Building capacity for innovative public-private joint venture * Improving the relevance and penetration of financial (protection) and agricultural advisory services

Output 4 : Five best-fit investment options for programs and policies in East and West Africa * Identification of climate-smart business models and finance mechanisms * Scaling up the use of evidence in projects, policies and with the private sector

Groupes Cibles : The primary target group for this project is 400,000 poorer smallholder farmers (particularly women) who face the twin challenge of food insecurity and climate change. Through our projects and partners, the target groups will receive incentives to adopt CSA practices and technologies. Other target groups include development agencies who work all the way from with grassroots through to national programs. The project also supports local and regional institutions that lead agricultural planning, as well as private sector companies that can scale up CSA solutions.
