The Economics and Policy Innovations for Climate-Smart Agriculture (EPIC) programme works with governments, research centres, universities and other institutional partners to support the transition to Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) by using sound economic and policy analysis. It is a programme of work aimed at identifying and harmonizing climate-smart agricultural policies, analyzing impacts, effects, costs and benefits as well as incentives and barriers to the adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices. The ultimate objective of the programme is to support developing and in-transition countries to formulate agricultural investment proposals to increase resilience to climate change and promote CSA.

EPIC seeks to bridge the gap between field research, policy making and financial investments in agriculture. More information about our activities

Research: aimed at analyzing and identifying impacts, effects, costs and benefits as well as incentives and barriers to the adoption of Climate-Smart agricultural practices.

Policies and institutions: provide advice on the formulation and implementation of Climate-Smart agricultural policies.

Investments in agriculture: formulating CSA investment proposals for developing countries.


EPIC is currently working on a project aimed at strengthening the capacity of three partner countries - Malawi, Viet Nam and Zambia - to address constraints and promote Climate-Smart Agriculture that will deliver both food security and improved livelihoods, as well as global public good in the form of avoided GHG emissions. The project is also strengthening the capacities of Ministries of Agriculture to engage in UNFCCC negotiations on climate change.

The programme is supported by the European Union (EU), the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme.
