The vulnerability of African agriculture to climate change creates key tasks of promoting agricultural adaptations and adaptive capacity in agriculture, and embracing opportunities for low-carbon development in agriculture. Agricultural research services, and agricultural advisory services, will be key actors in this work. This report synthesises findings from the project Climate Learning for African Agriculture, assessing how African agricultural research and advisory services are taking account of climate issues in their policies and practices, and how they can better do so in future. The project worked both at a regional level and through case studies in Sierra Leone, Benin, Uganda and Mozambique, with a strong emphasis on shared learning through national- and local-level workshops.

    16 Lamboll et al. (2011) give additional analysis of the NAPAs of Mozambique, Tanzania and Malawi, and equivalent highlevel climate policy in Ghana, their incorporation of agriculture, and issues in their implementation.

    17 Findings presented in sections 3-6 of the report are drawn, unless specified otherwise. from the case studies: Suale (forthcoming) for Sierra Leone, Moumouni and Idrissou (2013a) for national-level issues in Benin, Moumouni and Idrissou (2013b) for project-level issues in Benin, Mangheni et al. (2013) for Uganda and Parkinson (2013) for Mozambique. Unless required otherwise by the argument, findings are presented in the same order of countries.
