Every three years, the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) brings together various players in the African agricultural arena for the Africa Agriculture Science Week (AASW). This Monday saw the kick-off of AASW6 in Accra, Ghana, themed “Africa Feeding Africa through Agricultural Science and Innovation”.

Under the effects of climate change, Sub-Saharan Africa faces risks to food production, increased heat extremes, droughts and changes to vegetation. To help arm Africa against these problems, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is in Ghana to share lessons and successes from our participatory action research project: ‘Climate-Smart Villages (CSV’s). During a side-event, we explained the Climate-Smart Villages approach, which is being implemented across various CCAFS sites in East and West Africa.
