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.
Dr Stephen Whitfield highlights why history and current circumstances are key to informing radical food systems’ transformation – the kinds of changes necessary to meet the SDGs and maintain a safe and just planet for future generations.
Effective collaboration is key to tackling the ‘grand challenges’ we face before time runs out. According to Professor Tim Benton, shifting our thinking to a systems approach is critical for our success.
