Dr Katharine Vincent is currently in Togo to visit with maize and sorghum farmers – and farmers' organisations working with them – in the southern maritime climatic zone to see how they are responding to climate change. Agricultural adaptations are being assessed in six countries across Africa as part of a project managed by Kulima and UNIQUE Landuse and Forestry that seeks to identify agricultural adaptation best practices on behalf of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme. Different farming systems and commodity types were selected for further investigation at a workshop in 2013. This visit follows from a related one to Zambia in April 2014. The final results of the study are anticipated in early 2015.
