Cropping systems diversification to enhance productivity and adaptation to climate change in Zambia

Economic and Policy Analysis of Climate Change (EPIC) Team, FAO [ 2019 ]
Spatial disconnect between cropping system diversification and climate risk. In Zambia, farmers residing in areas with low and medium rainfall risk are more likely to adopt diversified systems than farmers in areas with lower rainfall and greater rainfall variability. Lack [...]
   

Cropping systems diversification to enhance productivity and adaptation to climate change in Malawi

Economic and Policy Analysis of Climate Change (EPIC) Team, FAO [ 2019 ]
Widespread maize monocropping in Malawi exposes farmers to significant livelihood risk in the context of increasing climate variability. 36 percent of rural households grow maize in monocrop. These farmers are often poor and land constrained, and experience low levels of [...]
