Digital Climate Advisory Services (DCAS) for Smallholder Resilience Opportunities and Challenges to Scale to 300 Million Farmers
All CountriesWBCSD

Around 30% of global crop production is threatened by climate change impacts and over 300 million small scale farmers do not have access to climate advisory services to help them respond to this threat. To serve this farmer population, billions of do...

The Crucial Role of Domestic and International Market-Mediated Adaptation to Climate Change
All CountriesCHRISTOPHE GOUEL AND DAVID LABORDE DEBUCQUET

Climate change effects on agricultural yields will be uneven over the world. A few countries, mostly in high latitudes, may experience gains, while most will see average yield decrease. This paper aims to quantify the role of market-mediated adjustme...

Climate Change Adaptation in the Nigerian Agricultural Sector
NigeriaLAURA SCHMITT-OLABISI, LENIS SAWEDA O. LIVERPOOL-T...

West Africa is expected to suffer yield and production losses of staple crops under climate change, with more severe yield reductions occurring in the period between 2030 and 2050 (Ittersum et al., 2016). In addition, extreme events, including drough...

Conservation Agriculture Improves Adaptive Capacity of Cropping Systems to Climate Stress in Malawi
MalawiADAM M. KOMAREK, CHRISTIAN THIERFELDER AND PETER R...

Adaptation to climate stress is an unprecedented challenge facing cropping systems. Most adaptation assessments focus on how adaptation options affect yields of a single crop under different weather or climate conditions. Yet, cropping systems often...

Climate Change and Egypt’s Agriculture
EgyptNICOSTRATO D. PEREZ, YUMNA KASSIM, CLAUDIA RINGLER...

With climate change, Egypt’s already arid climate will face even higher temperatures and lower rainfall over key agricultural areas, requiring further urgent adaptation investments. Data from three general circulation models of climate were used to b...

The Heat Never Bothered Me Anyway: Gender‐Specific Response Of Agricultural Labor To Climatic Shocks In Tanzania
TanzaniaYEYOUNG LEE, BELIYOU HAILE, GREG SEYMOUR AND CARLO...

Agricultural production in Africa is generally highly labor intensive with gender‐specific specialization across activities. Using panel data from Tanzania, we examine the effects of heat stress (temperature above 29°C) during the maize‐growing seaso...

Reducing Climate-Induced Heat Stress in Pigs in Uganda: Policy Actions
UgandaMutua J, Zaake P, Notenbaert A, Paul B.

Pig farming is important for income generation and nutrition for a large population in Uganda, with 4.2 million pigs being kept in 2017. However, future projections indicate that domestic pork production will not be sufficient to meet the increasi...
