Actions on climate change (SDG 13), including in the food system, are crucial. SDG 13 needs to align with the Paris Agreement, given that UNFCCC negotiations set the framework for climate change actions. Food system actions ...
Soil water crop modeling for decision support in millet-based systems in the Sahel: a challenge
(Academic Journals, 2014)
Food insecurity in the Sahelian environment was extensively shown to be a result of low soil fertility and high climate risks. But decisions and recommendations made from the great wealth of research have little been adopted ...
The climate-smart village approach: framework of an integrative strategy for scaling up adaptation options in agriculture
(Resilience Alliance, 2018)
