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.
