Photo: N. Palmer (CIAT).  According to Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) research, up to 17 percent of households in Nyando are unable to meet their food needs for 3 to 4 months in a year mostly due to poor timing of planting season and planting of unrecommended seeds. CCAFS, Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) and Ministry of Agriculture are working at empowering farmers within the basin to manage climate risk through a combination of crop diversification and improved practices.

CGIAR Climate's curator insight, October 16, 2013 9:12 AM

Use of simple accessible agricultural innovations spearheaded by scientists is helping farmers across East and West Africa adapt to climate change. The programme ― called climate-smart agriculture ― is being implemented by the research program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). According to the CGIAR, farmers need to increase food production by 60 per cent to ensure food security while at the same time fighting climate change. CCAFS is working with 11 villages in East and West Africa to help smallholder farmers adopt innovative agricultural practices that can help them cope with climate change and enhance food security.
