Food loss and waste (FLW) reduces the amount of food available for distribution and consumption, decreases food security, and increases the environmental burden of food production.

In Africa, the African Union is committed to addressing climate change issues with a gender perspective.

Soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration on agricultural land decreases the costs of climate change mitigation while promoting increased food security. SOC has the potential to sequester up to 3.5 GtCO2eq/yr by 2050 in a scenario consistent with 1.5 ºC warming.

Carbon price policies deliver cost-efficient mitigation across sectors, but can result in tradeoffs with food security and other sustainable development goals. Scenarios for a 1.5 °C world based on carbon prices could increase the undernourished population by 80 - 300 million in 2050.

The top ten success stories from CCAFS in South Asia presented in this document, exhibit evidence on how agriculture can be transformed to become resilient and productive, thereby, protecting the farming systems from the hazards of climate change.

Most countries in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), including Ghana, rely on agriculture for their income and food security. Any initiative that might help to sustain and improve productivity in agriculture would be a crucial step in improving people’s livelihoods.

Nicaragua is particularly vulnerable to climate change due to its geographic, social, economic and environmental conditions. Increased temperature, fluctuation of precipitation patterns, and sea-level rise pose significant impacts for agricultural productivity, water resources availability and the risk of extreme disaster.

This review has been undertaken in the context of preparation of a concept note for the Kenya dairy NAMA. Biogas promotion is one of the project components.

With data collected from 750 farming households using survey questionnaire and 25 Focus Group Discussions (FGD), this report documents farmers’ perception of climate change and adaptation strategies in the Brong Ahafo and Upper West regions of Ghana. Results showed that DTM varieties are a viable strategy for adaptation to climate change.

Evaluated 3,046 farmers spread across the country’s districts to establish baseline about climate information and climate change, in September 2016. This Info Note shares insights into the status and needs for climate
services in Rwanda at the time of this survey.
