Delivering smart climate change adaptation and mitigation options for East African agriculture

Cover of a new booklet published by CCAFS and launched at a CCAFS-ILRI science seminar yesterday (30 May 2017).

How can science help deliver smart climate change adaptation and mitigation options for East African agriculture?

On 30 May 2017, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) held a science seminar at ILRI’s campus in Nairobi on delivering climate change options for the region.

Participants shared knowledge and discussed best practices—and persistent gaps—in climate change adaptation and mitigation options for East Africa’s millions of small-scale food producers.

Scientists described CCAFS policy and engagement work, ILRI’s practical work in livestock insurance, gender issues and greenhouse gas emissions to help the region’s livestock sector both mitigate and adapt to climate change, and CCAFS strategies for conducting science and building partnerships for greater development impacts.
