Climate smart agriculture is an approach to identify production systems that can best respond to impacts of climate change and to adjust these systems to suit local environmental conditions now and in future This approach can help transform agricultural systems to support sustainable development and food security in a changing climate.
The planet is changing and this is undeniable. Climate change presents a critical challenge for global food security. The farmers, herders and fishers who produce our food are hit hard by the consequence of climate change. Farming communities need to build their resilience and ability to adopt climate change in a way that they can feed the growing population without further depleting our precious resources of soil and water. This can be achieved through adopting Climate Smart Agriculture.
Climate Smart Agriculture is about adapting and building resilience to the impacts of climate change, reducing greenhouse gases and increasing sustainably production and income and this is done through Environmental Conservation.
Environmental conservation is the protection, preservation, management, or restoration of natural environments and the ecological communities that inhabit them. Conservation is generally held to include the management of human use of natural resources for current public benefit and sustainable social and economic utilization.
KENDAT makes Climate Smart Agriculture a reality through supporting and empowering local institutions and motivating farmers to adapt the practices and plan together the best way to do Climate Smart Agriculture.
