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.
Sustainable and environmentally-friendly pest control could save billions of tonnes of crops every year. University of Leeds researchers Dr Steve Sait and Dr Stephen Whitfield explore GCRF-AFRICAP research and ask: how can we help farmers get fair access?
Despite there being a high level of knowledge around what climate-smart agriculture technologies and practises work on the ground, uptake remains low in smallholder farming systems across Africa. Dr Harriet Smith explores AFRICAP research in Tanzania, sharing six key messages for future climate-smart agriculture implementation.
