Measuring Livelihood Change Across CCAFS Communities
The Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Program as part of the CG Research Program has invested significantly over the past decade in understanding how smallholder farmer communities across the world are affected by, and responding to climate change. Using a framework for Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), CCAFS has implemented multiple efforts throughout global sites, and sought to document the livelihood outcomes among community members at various time points. CSA as a development strategy is an approach that considers agricultural and food system interventions and changes that have three main objectives: 1. Sustainability increase agricultural production and incomes; 2. To adapt agricultural systems and build resilience to climate change; and 3. To reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions in agri-food systems when possible (UN FAO 2021).
