CIMMYT launched a new project last week. The project is one of the CGIAR/CCAFS Flagship Projects on Climate Smart Agriculture.
It aims to generate an enabling environment for incentives and institutes at sub-national scale. Alterra’s role will be to scan, develop, pilot and scale business cases for Climate Smart Agricultural practices for which we will establish innovation platforms at the local and meta-levels.
The project fits the Alterra strategic programme Green Climate Solutions and links up with the Alterra Green Economic Growth and Food Security programmes as well.
