Empirical evidence has shown that farmers can adapt to climate change by using sustainable land and water management (SLWM) practices that provide local mitigation benefits, reducing or offsetting the negative effects of climate change at the level of the plot, farm, or even landscape. However, adaptation to climate change using SLWM practices in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) remains low. This study was conducted to examine the impact of government policies on adaptation to climate change.
This report presents the summary of the Methodology, Agricultural Households (Ag HHs) and holding Characteristics as well as Crop Area and Production reports.
This report presents the findings relating to area, production, yields and disposition of major crops.
This report presents the findings relating to some demographic and social economic characteristics of Agricultural households (Ag HHs), agricultural services, irrigation and water management, agricultural inputs, household food security as well as economic activities and sources of income.
This report outlines the methodology adopted with regard to sample design, enumeration plan, data processing and analysis.
The study evaluates the potential impacts of the Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa (DTMA) project run by CIMMYT and the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in 13 countries of eastern, southern and West Africa: Angola, Benin, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, ambia, and Zimbabwe and Ghana.
Agricultural production statistics reported at country or sub-national geopolitical scales are used in a wide range of economic analyses, and spatially explicit (geo-referenced) production data are increasingly needed to support improved approaches to the planning and implementation of agricultural development. However, it is extremely challenging to compile and maintain collections of sub-national crop production data, particularly for poorer regions of the world.
In this chapter, an economic surplus approach is applied to assess the potential impact of a range of current and emerging technologies.
This chapter presents specific questions posed in this research, elements of the conceptual framework, and a synopsis of the sample design. Two levels of observation and
