This manual is designed for a four-day training course on climate-smart agriculture that would take the learner from the basics of climate science to the impacts of climate change and the linkages among climate, agriculture and food security. It contains four modules, each addressing a particular aspect and consisting of several sessions that are held either in plenary, as one group, or in smaller work groups (Table 1). The content and structure of this manual has been developed and tested through fieldwork involving extension agents and agricultural producers in Zambia, Malawi and Viet Nam.

This report draws out the major trends affecting agriculture, in the NENA region and the general implications for small-scale farmers before delving into an integrated analysis at the farming system level. Using temperature and precipitation data from the RICCAR (2017) report, this study has developed Climate Impacted Farming System (CIFS) maps that demonstrate what the projected temperature and precipitation changes will be for the farming systems of the region by the mid-century (2046–2060) in a moderate and worstcase scenario.

In addition to exploring the complex linkages between agricultural trade, climate change and food security, the report outlines diverse policy options for responding to these challenges.  The report stresses that climate change will affect both agricultural productivity and international trade patterns, but that at the same time international trade in food will remain an important tool that countries can use to cope with negative impacts. It also includes an in-depth overview of the evolution of agricultural trade during the period 2000–2016 and the outlook for agricultural commodities moving forward.
