  • The six "ins" of climate-smart agriculture: Inclusive institutions for information, innovation, investment, and insurance

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This paper reviews the central role of institutions for climate-smart agriculture (CSA), focusing on the role of institutions in promoting inclusivity, providing information, enabling local level innovation, encouraging investment, and offering insurance to enable smallholders, women, and poor resource-dependent communities to adopt and benefit from CSA. We discuss the role of state, collective action, and market institutions at multiple levels, with particular attention to the importance of local-level institutions and institutional linkages across levels.

  • Using climate as a poverty reduction and development resource in Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Climate variation and extreme climate events can cause major problems for poor, vulnerable people. For example, changes in rainfall can limit agricultural activity, trigger disease epidemics and affect roads and water supplies. Improvements in climate science mean that climate information and products are becoming more useful, but they are rarely used in development planning and decision-making.In 2007, climate change was on the agenda of the African
    Union (AU) Heads of State Summit for the first time. This resulted in the

  • Unjust waters: climate change, flooding and the protection of poor urban communities: experiences from six African cities

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Six years ago, at the UN Millennium Summit, world leaders set a specific target for realising the right to adequate housing and ‘continuous improvement of living conditions’. However, in Africa climate change is already threatening that goal, causing massive rural-urban migration and bringing chronic flooding to the cities. This paper explores the impact that climate-induced flooding is having on Africa’s urban poor and argues that urgent action is needed at all levels to help poor people cope with these problems.

  • Designing adaptation projects

    Objective:
    Approach:

    Sustainable community-based strategies can play an essential role in helping poor and vulnerable communities adapt to the risks posed by climate change. The Adaptation Programme of the SouthSouthNorth (SSN) Project has developed a learning by doing approach for identifying, designing, implementing and monitoring community-based adaptation activities. This approach is known as the SouthSouthNorth Adaptation Project Protocol (SSNAPP).
    SSNAPP is grouped into four phases:
