Identifying opportunities for climate-smart agriculture investments in Africa

Source(s):  Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

This paper proposes a methodology to examine the potential of existing National Agriculture and Food Security Investment Plans NAFSIPs to generate climate change benefits. A rapid screening methodology is presented and applied to 14 NAFSIPs, all of which include agricultural development programmes/sub-programmes that benefit both adaptation to slow-onset climatic change and extreme events, and climate change mitigation. On average, about 60 percent of the activities planned are expected to generate climate benefits in terms of slow-onset climate change, 18 percent adaptation to extreme events, and 19 percent climate change mitigation.

The countries mentioned are Benin, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Uganda.
