Strengthening partnerships that deliver climate-smart innovations in agriculture.

This AICCRA team works to build and deepen the partnerships between a whole range of organisations and stakeholders so that African farmers—as well as those who work in Africa’s agriculture and food sectors—can better predict and adapt to the impact of climate change.

The stronger partnerships that this team fosters between scientists, researchers, the private sector and public institutions will help them all collectively identify ‘best-bet’ innovations that help farmers adapt, and speed up their deployment.

Working all the way from research to development and on to deployment, the team shares knowledge and promotes collaboration among continental, regional and national organisations across Africa with capacity development support and technical assistance.

Key among these institutions are national meteorological services, organisations that make up National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (NARES), the regional agricultural research organisations, regional and continental farmers’ organisations, universities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the private sector.
