Policy Brief

This briefing paper argues that in order to achieve the targets set out in the Malabo Declaration, which was adopted in 2014 with the aim to improve nutrition and food security across Africa, and to increase agricultural productivity by 2025 while building resilience to the effects of climate change, African governments must support programmes that will contribute to strengthening smallholder farmers’ resilience and improving their livelihoods. To do so national investment plans are increasingly taking up climate-smart agriculture objectives and while this is a good start, more action has to be taken to scale-up programmes that have proven impactful and scalable. The briefing paper highlights 15 success stories that have had substantial impact and can be taken to scale or replicated in other contexts.
