9 ways to get climate-smart agriculture to more people

The process of getting better practices to more people – “scaling up” innovations to make agriculture more climate-smart – has baffled many development practitioners. Some approaches work on a small scale, but suddenly on a larger scale, everything changes. These are the challenges that the authors of these 9 briefs just published set out to address.

CIAT in Africa

CIAT’s vision of the promise of tropical agriculture is especially relevant to sub-Saharan Africa. Nowhere does the well-being of so many people depend so much on a concerted effort to realize farming’s potential for reducing chronic hunger, opening pathways out of rural poverty, enhancing human nutrition, and improving the management of natural resources. CIAT works especially on the following topics:

  • Eco-Efficient Smallholder Farming
  • Bean Revolution
  • Soils and Sustainable Development
  • Feeding the Livestock Revolution
