Vuna is a DFID-funded regional Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) programme. CSA focuses on sustainably improving agricultural production and increasing income; improving agricultural resilience to climate change; and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
Vuna is promoting the broader adoption of climate smart agriculture technologies through a series of pilot projects.
Projects that are successful are likely to be scaled-up. They will be expanded within the pilot country, replicated in neighbouring countries, or both. This paper summarises Vuna’s initial efforts to meet these objectives.
This report is prepared using:
- a literature review
- desk reviews
- field visits to two countries
- discussions with key stakeholders engaged in the scaling-up projects
- discussions with key informants with knowledge of agricultural R&D processes in Zambia and Zimbabwe
