GCRF-Agricultural and Food System Resilience: Increasing Capacity and Advising Policy (AFRICAP) is a £9.2 million programme to make agriculture and food production in sub-Saharan Africa more productive, sustainable and resilient to climate change.
Working with local organisations and governments in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, we are creating an evidence base to underpin new country-specific policies in agriculture and food production.
Soil degradation is a critical issue that must be addressed to achieve food security in Africa. Dr Samuel Eze unpacks his recent research on soil health in Malawi and Tanzania, sharing insights on ways to address soil degradation through climate-smart agriculture.
Agricultural innovation packages, like conservation agriculture, are usually developed by research communities and disseminated for farmers to use. Through examples from her research with CIMMYT and Malawian farmers, Thirze Hermans explains why we need to rethink how we measure success, moving beyond counting adoption to consider local context.
