Abstract: The project collectively identified information, training and products to be shared and used to develop agricultural innovation systems better able to adapt to climate change and variability. Major research themes included soil and water management, crop and varietal biodiversity, and local weather data. In general, findings revealed that deep tillage for in-situ harvesting of rain water, early maturing and drought resistant varieties and crops, new cash crops, training on community seed production, improved irrigation arrangements, and climate change and climate variability awareness raising, all contributed to strengthening adaptation capacity as indicated by increased crop yields.
