Sammanfattning

The Adaptation for Food Security and Ecosystem Resilience in Africa (AFERIA) is a two year project to disseminate and communicate research results, insights and interactions of climate change and food security developed by a previous research and development project (CHIESA-Climate Change Impacts on Ecosystem Services and Food Security in Eastern Africa). The project is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and coordinated by the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe) in Nairobi, Kenya. The AFERIA project disseminates research findings on climate change impacts and implements adaptation technologies such as drip irrigation, roof rainwater harvesting, conservation agriculture, farm forestry and insect pest management to the partner organisations and beneficiary communities in different agro-ecological zones in the highlands of Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.
The project closely collaborates with national and local organizations in the three countries to reach out to the smallholder farmers, especially women and special needs groups. In addition, through communication and advocacy, AFERIA supports policy and decision makers in making rational and evidence-based decisions on climate change adaptation to enhance food security and ecosystem resilience in the target areas.

Objective: Improved food, nutrition security, and livelihoods of small-scale farmers in Eastern Africa.
