Climate Adaptation in Agriculture: Setting the EAC scene and remaining needs

EAC negotiators are engaged in negotiations under the UNFCCC that have implications for agriculture and agro-processing, especially under the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture . The information from the ground may help them in advancing their negotiating agenda, as appropriate, with concrete examples and stories. This note will seek to give an overview of the current policy/strategy framework of EAC governments to support agriculture adaptation to climate change, as well as the current programmes/projects being implemented in the region. The diverse benefits of such policies and projects will also be presented, before discussing what the governments and their UNFCCC negotiators may do to go beyond what is already in place in their country.
