Climate Change Risk Analysis for staple crops – IFAD Smallholder Agribusiness Development Project (SADeP)

The ACDI is conducting a risk analysis of various agricultural crops in Angola for the SADeP – the overall programme includes specific activities to improve the nutritional status of households and build resilience to the effects of climate change at all agricultural levels. The objectives of the risk analysis are to: i) consider the potential impacts of projected climate change on the selected value chains (coffee, sisal, sugar, cotton, maize, bananas, legumes and grazed livestock production) using modelling approaches and GIS tools; and ii) make recommendations on how to manage the climate risks for the aforementioned value chains and increase the resilience of small scale farmers in Angola’s rural communities.
