Climate & Agriculture

Overview
Agricultural modernization offers a crucial path to industrialization and economic transformation. However, agricultural transformation is threatened by the increasingly devastating impacts of climate change, with many countries already experiencing droughts, floods, and variable rainfall. To help farmers raise productivity, climate-smart agriculture can help build resilience. By applying technological innovations across the agricultural value chain, countries can turn climate risks into opportunities and boost their export competitiveness and economic diversification.

Our advocacy work aims to amplify the collective African voice for climate action, in pursuit of common goals of increased climate funding, strengthened carbon markets, and climate reparations. Our work on agriculture builds on the research and findings from the 2017 African Transformation Report – Agriculture Powering Africa’s Economic Transformation – which emphasized the need for agriculture to be a key driver of transformation, and the 2021 African Transformation Report Integrating to Transform, which identified climate-smart agriculture as a key area for collective action to manage climate risks.
