We’re working towards a climate-smart African future driven by science and innovation in agriculture

Trials of drought tolerant beans in Malawi, which is suffering from its worst drought in three decades.

The AICCRA project has teams in six focus countries who work in partnership to scale climate information services and climate-smart agriculture, increasing access and use of CGIAR innovations for millions of smallholder farmers in Africa.

With better access to technology and advisory services—linked to information about effective response measures—farmers can better anticipate climate-related events to take preventative action that helps their communities safeguard livelihoods and the environment.

In each country, AICCRA teams collaborate through their activities on four research priorities– sharing knowledge, building partnerships, scaling innovation and fostering inclusion.
