This video documents two related projects implemented by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Uganda. The projects conducted research on how people can better interact across scales to improve agricultural adaptation to climate change. The Policy Action for Climate Change Adaptation project was part of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), and the Scaling of Climate Smart Agricultural Practices project was funded by IFAD. Together, the two projects helped forge stronger connections along a chain of actors: from national policy makers, to district-level learning alliances, all the way to farmers. Demonstration plots helped educate farmers on climate-smart agricultural practices, and learning alliances created spaces for dialogue between policy makers, researchers, district planners, and more. The PACCA project also examined budgets allocated for gender issues to help stimulate discussion at the various levels on how women and men can best be helped to adapt to climate change.
