Kulima Integrated Development Solutions and UNIQUE Forestry and Land Use have been awarded a GIZ contract on agricultural adaptation to climate change.  Forming part of GIZ’s programme of support to the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), this project will develop 6 “best practices” on adaptation to climate change for smallholder farmers.  These will be elicited through collaboration with regional and national farmer organisations from across the African continent, combined with 3 regional thematic workshops.  This collaboration will build on links forged through the Africa Forum, organised by NEPAD to enable knowledge transfer through a variety of continental and regional platforms since 2009.  The ultimate aim is to use these best practices to inform national policy and raise the profile of agricultural adaptation on the international agenda.
