We want a climate-smart future in Africa, driven by science and innovation in agriculture.

Kelvin Trautmann

AICCRA has six country teams and regional initiatives that work with national and regional partners to transform climate services and scale climate-smart agriculture, increasing access to and use of CGIAR innovations for the benefit of millions of small-scale 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.

AICCRA teams focus activities on four research priorities – sharing knowledge, building partnerships, scaling innovation and fostering gender and social inclusion.
