Performance and potential of Conservation Agriculture for climate change adaptation and mitigation in sub-Saharan Africa
MetadataShow full item record
This resource offers an extensive review of Conservation Agriculture (CA) practices in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) in an effort to determine future possibilities and applications of these practices in the same region. EcoAgriculture Partners performed a literature review, interviews, field visits to Mozambique and Tanzania, and critical analysis to reveal the current status of CA in SSA, production stages where it may be most relevant, and future extension methodologies. The authors found that despite the many environmental, economic, and social benefits to CA, adoption was sparse. Recommendations for facilitating adoption include intensive education, policy changes, and infrastructure development.
