The AFRICAP programme aims to make agriculture and food production in sub-Saharan Africa more productive, sustainable and resilient to climate change.

Over 200 experts from the GCRF-Agricultural and Food System Resilience: Increasing Capacity and Advising Policy (AFRICAP) project spent four years working with governments, civil society and the private sector in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia. The team created an evidence base to underpin new country-specific policies in agriculture and food production. 

The programme ended in April 2022. Explore our key findings and evidence base in the resources below.

Planning future food production with iFEED

iFEED is a tool that explores how climate change and government policy will affect food production in sub-Saharan Africa. The tool examines the impact of different levels of climate risk and policy making in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia. You can use iFEED to plan a pathway to future sustainable food production.

Explore AFRICAP’s key findings

With the right climate-smart policies in place, crop production can increase by more than 500% in some countries. Climate-smart policies can also lead to good food security and improved livelihoods.

Explore more key findings and learn how to translate this evidence into policy and practical action in our final report.
