Scaling Up Climate-Smart Agriculture through the Africa Climate Business Plan
Scaling up climate-smart agriculture in Africa is vital to ending hunger and boosting shared prosperity on the continent. The Africa Climate Business Plan (ACBP) launched at the twenty-first Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris is an important step toward addressing the interlinked challenges of food security and climate change. The ACBP calls for focused public and private sector investments to help African people and countries adapt to climate change and build up the continent’s resilience to climate shocks. The Plan includes a focus on climate-smart agriculture and supports the vision for accelerated agricultural transformation in support of the Malabo Declaration.
