Making agricultural production and management systems climate-smart is a highly knowledge-intensive process thus current gaps in knowledge and capacity need to be addressed systematically. Due to the uncertain and dynamic nature of climate change impacts, a transition towards climate-smart agriculture requires socio-institutional learning processes that utilize the innovation potential of agricultural systems. To achieve food security, there is need for efficient and effective knowledge management and capacity development in reducing the vulnerability to climate change by:

  • Establishing existing capacity gaps on CSA technologies and practices
  • Developing training materials that can support the capacity development gaps identified
  • Strengthening institutional and community capacity and partnerships to deliver climate services and products
  • Generating, developing, sustaining and disseminating knowledge and information to support CSA technologies and practices
