Integrating climate change into agricultural research for development in Africa

Integrating climate change into agricultural research for development in Africa | Agricultural Biodiversity | Scoop.it

African agriculture faces the dual challenge of being vulnerable to climate change and largely underfunded. This briefing, commissioned by the European Initiative for Agricultural Research for Development (EIARD), discusses the need to integrate climate change into agricultural research for development, taking into account the synergies and trade-offs of adapting to and mitigating climate change while also boosting food security. This will demand a more strategic and coordinated approach that reflects African realities, responds to African priorities for adaptation and development, and makes the best use of limited resources.
