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.
Pests and crop diseases reduce 20-40% of annual crop yields and sometimes even destroy entire farms. Dr Hemant Tripathi unpacks AFRICAP agroecology research from Tanzania, exploring how identifying management practices might be key to outsmarting pests.
The integrated Future Estimator for Emissions and Diets (iFEED) is more than a modelling framework. Dr Stewart Jennings unpacks how iFEED models future food production and nutrition, putting people at the centre of projections.
