- DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2015Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) is an approach to address the interlinked challenges of food security and climate change, and has three objectives: (1) sustainably increasing agricultural productivity, to support equitable increases in farm incomes, food security and development; (2) adapting and building resilience of agricultural and food security systeDocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Rwanda’s variable and changing climate is an increasingly serious challenge to the country’s agricultural sector and farming population. Climate information services are emerging as a means to support farmers to manage risk and provide an opportunity to build the resilience of agriculture to climate at all time scales.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is being widely promoted as a solution for food insecurity and climate change adaptation in food systems of sub-Saharan Africa, while simultaneously reducing the rate of greenhouse gas emissions. Governments throughout Africa are writingDocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Climate-smart agriculture (CSA)—agriculture and food systems that sustainably increase food production, improve resilience (or adaptive capacity) of farming systems, and mitigate climate change when possible—has quickly been integrated into the global development agenda.DocumentAfrican Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008This paper examines the impact of climate change on primary crops grown in Africa. An innovative approach is presented that bridges the gap between agro-economic and traditional Ricardian models, labelled by the authors as a ‘Structural Ricardian model’. It first captures the type of crop a farmer will select and then examines the conditional net revenue of that crop.DocumentInternational Trade Centre, 2007Agriculture is affected by climate change but also contributes to it. As a sector, agriculture must therefore both adapt to changes and offers options for mitigation, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and storing carbon. This study explores the mitigation and adaptation potential of organic agriculture.
