Climate Smart Agriculture 2019

March 16, 2020

The Climate Smart Agriculture Insights from Practice manual based on a three-and-a-half years project, involving Ministry of Agricultural Development and Food Security (MoADFS) Extension Staff and BITRI Researchers working with smallholder dryland arable farmers in Kgalagadi South and Barolong sub districts.

It benefits from interactions with 45 smallholder farmers comprising of 29 Females and 16 males, from these districts, both in controlled workshop environments, meetings and out in their natural environment; the field/farms. The interactions were facilitated through support of the GEF Small Grants Programme implemented by UNDP under the project; “Climate Variability and Change Risk and Management, Development of Decision support systems for Dryland Small Scale Arable Farmers”

We particularly acknowledge the contributions of Professor. Nnyaladzi Batisani who provided oversight and direction throughout the project implementation.
