"To a large extent, the international community already knows what it needs to do to reduce the level of devastation to African agriculture in future extreme weather events," the head of the CGIAR'S climate programme @cgiarclimate Bruce Campbell says.

Sir Gordon Conway believes donors are committed to ending hunger in Africa. But the director of the advocacy group Agriculture for Impact worries that climate change could derail even the best-laid and well-funded plans.

“I think climate change is the biggest threat, particularly in Africa,” said the man recognized as one of the world’s leading scholars on agricultural development and currently professor of International Development at Imperial College London.

Conway discussed the agriculture-climate change dilemma during an exclusive interview with Devex in Paris, where he was a speaker at the “Closing the Gender Gap in Farming Under Climate Change” conference sponsored by a coalition of groups spearheaded by CGIAR, an international consortium of agricultural research organizations.

The research was conducted by EcoAgriculture Partners and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). It focused on five aspects: project organisation and management, the structure and role of community groups within the projects, costs and benefits for managers and farmers, strategies to manage risks to farmers, and efforts to support women's participation. The participating projects included CARE International's Sustainable Agriculture in a Changing Climate, Vi Agroforestry’s, Clean Air Action Corporation’s (CAAC) and the International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST), all in Kenya

Save the rice | My Republica | carbon projects | Scoop.it

Increasing extreme weather events caused by climate change affects agricultural production. Therefore, it is important to have projections for the future so that farmers can better adapt to the changing climate. The article mentions the CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) model that will help bring powerful advance information tools to farmers and food security decision makers, better allowing them to manage within-season climate risk to agriculture.

In a recent forum presentation, IFPRI’s Mark Rosegrant said the amount covers P45 billion in losses from increased malnutrition and P26 billion in economic losses.

“Climate change reduces crop productivity growth, increases food prices and reduces food security,” Rosegrant said.

The researchers in a new study received in Nairobi on Saturday say getting farmers, communities, governments, donors and other stakeholders to embrace various adaptation strategies can end up being equally or more important than seeking higher levels of scientific certainty from a climate model: “In Kenya, as well as in many countries in Africa and elsewhere in the developing world, climate change is a critical policy priority,” said James Kinyangi, regional program leader for CCAFS in East Africa.

 

According to the study from CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), in Kenya for example, rain-fed agriculture contributes more than one-quarter of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
