Can Input Subsidy Programs Promote Climate Smart Agriculture in Africa?

Climate smart agriculture (CSA) has emerged as an approach to enhance the resilience of farming systems to the effects of climate change. CSA is defined by three principle objectives: 1) sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes; 2) adapting and building resilience to climate change; and 3) reducing and/or removing greenhouse gases emissions, where possible. In Africa there is particular interest in identifying strategies to encourage farmers to adopt practices and technologies that enable their farms to be more resilient and productive, while at the same time identifying system-wide collective action to promote a wide range of ex ante risk management activities and ex post coping strategies.
