Why Climate-Smart Agriculture? 

Agriculture remains the major backbone of the Africa economy, however, the way our food is currently grown and consumed has repeatedly implicated agriculture as the major driver of the climate crisis and biodiversity loss among others. This, therefore, suggests that efforts aimed at addressing the trio challenges of the climate crisis, biodiversity conservation, and meeting the nutritional needs of the burgeoning global population require a major shift from the current food production system. Sustainable farming approaches such as agroecology, irrigation farming, and organic farming, among others, ensure that environmental and human needs are met sustainably and healthily while ensuring the peaceful co-existence with the other life forms that we share the planet with. Agroecology can and is potentially able to double food production in the next 10 years while mitigating climate change and alleviating poverty
