    Is Climate-Smart Agriculture effective? A review of selected cases

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2015
    Climate-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 syste

    Crop switching as a strategy for adapting to climate change

    African Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008
    This 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.

    Organic agriculture and climate change

    International Trade Centre, 2007
    Agriculture 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.
