Enhancing small farmer incomes and productivity in the implementation of climate-smart agriculture

Sénégal

Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR)

Research program : Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)

Région /Pays : Sénégal

Date  : non précisée

Descriptif

In this project, CCAFS will identify and estimate small-holder vulnerability to climatic variability and long-term change in Senegal. In addition, CCAFS will design efficient and sustainable adaptation strategies that can offset the impacts of climate change on farm-level productivity, incomes, food security and poverty. The focus of the research is on the socio-economic impacts of climate change and the economic costs of adjustment and adaptation. The end product of the research will be a concrete set of adaptation guidelines that can be used to guide national budget and strategy decisions and national agricultural extension officers working with farmers in the ground.

Activités

This research will help to train scientists working at the national Senegalese agricultural research institute, ISRA. These scientists will be trained in both economic and biophysical modeling methods that can be applied directly to the project work. This will result in the expanded ability of ISRA to analyze useful information and apply it towards the planning and prioritization of needed interventions for climate-smart agriculture.

Partenaires

The project is led by International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) closely with CCAFS West Africa and will be implemented in Senegal.
