Strategies for adapting to climate change in rural sub-Saharan Africa

Source(s):  International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

IFPRI Discussion Paper 01013:

ASARECA has recently carried out a study to enhance the understanding of climate change in the 10 ASARECA member countries. This report profiles the available climate change-related datasets and their accessibility and procurement details in the 10 ASARECA member countries. The report additionally assesses the incorporation of climate change adaptation strategies in national development plans -  Poverty Reduction Strategy Programs (PRSPs) and National Adaptation Programs of Action (NAPAs) - and discusses each country’s position in the current UNFCCC negotiations. 

The study was conducted using a combination of extensive literature reviews and field visits to all 10 ASARECA member countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda --who have adopted, or are planning to adopt, a range of climate change adaptation strategies in agriculture.
