GCRF-AFRICAP

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.

iFEED

iFEED (the integrated Future Estimator for Emissions and Diets) is an online tool that resulted from AFRICAP’s work in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia. By combining computational modelling with specialist expertise, iFEED allows policymakers to access the evidence to plan future food production.
