The adverse impacts of climate change and
variability are a threat to the ecosystems
and livelihoods of communities in Eastern
Africa. Severe droughts, floods and extreme
weather events are occurring with greater
frequency and intensity in the region. Food
production systems and technologies need
to adapt to the emerging climatic scenarios
in order to improve food security and
contribute to the development of other
sectors. The Climate Smart Agriculture
(CSA) approach offers an opportunity for
achieving triple-wins of food security,
adaptation and mitigation. The Forum
for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA),
recognizing the need to promote CSA in
Africa and with support from the Norwegian
Agency for Development (NORAD), carried
out the state of knowledge on CSA in
Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda.
