This session will focus on climate-smart agriculture (CSA), an approach for transforming and reorienting agricultural systems to support food security under the dynamic realities of climate change. CSA underlines the importance of building evidence to identify viable options, value propositions and necessary enabling environments for effective implementation.

This session will also draw on lessons learned from various ongoing projects in the continent in providing evidence-based solutions to increase climate resilience in the agricultural system and food security. Presenters will provide information and highlight examples of best practices and effective solutions. The goal is also to undertake in-depth discussion on developing new opportunities and to mainstream CSA to transform a country’s agriculture sector into a more productive, climate-resilient, and low-emissions sector.
