Stimulating adoption of nutrition sensitive climate smart agriculture by aligning national level agenda with implementation

The project seeks to support the governments of Uganda and Ethiopia with scientific evidence to support policy action for climate smart agriculture and to align this with nutrition and gender sensitive needs. Research activities will include: (i) understanding the initiatives that the governments and non-state actors have been employing to address food and nutrition insecurity and the institutional infrastructure in place and align this with previous CCAFS work on mainstreaming climate change in policy; (ii) mapping out nutritional needs, opportunities and constraints of men, women and youth along the systems pathway based on the impact of climate change on their livelihoods; (iii) identifying pathways for scaling nutrition sensitive technologies taking into consideration the threat of climate change; (iv) conducting participatory policy analysis with farming communities and scenario-based land use planning to inform climate adaptation priorities and nutrition/gender at district level.
