Managing uncertainty: innovation systems for coping with climate variability and change

Duration: 01/Aug/2007 - 31/Dec/2010

Donor: Other international or regional organization,Association for Strengthening of Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA)-Uganda

This project aims to identify ways of coping with risks and realizing opportunities associated with current climate variability and future climate change in ECA enhanced through appropriate strategies and institutional innovations. The project will achieve its purpose through research activities that will lead to: knowledge synthesized and disseminated to researchers and planners to guide managers in making optimal choices with respect to the direct and indirect impacts of climate variability and change for the agricultural sector in ECA; an innovation system that will enable the meteorological and agricultural research and extension systems to jointly realize their potential; and tested and proven strategies and tools that address priority ASARECA Program concerns and provide an enhanced understanding of climate-induced risks in selected ASARECA countries.
