The Africa Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Alliance works to increase the uptake of CSA practices, particularly on the most vulnerable rural communities. Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) describes agricultural practices, approaches and systems that sustainably and reliably increase food production and the ability of farmers to earn a living, while protecting or restoring the environment. The combined effects of climate change, inequity and population pressures are escalating the food and nutrition security and income challenges faced by Sub-Saharan Africa 's smallholder farmers.
Members of the Alliance work collaboratively with relevant Governments to design and implement programmes in a way which maximises the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of investments. The Alliance leverages existing CSA initiatives and the strengths and capacities of all significant stakeholders to deliver results at scale and drive policy reform.
