The CGIAR research program on climate change agriculture and food security (CCAFS) has funded an IITA-led project “Influencing and linking policies and institutions from national to local level for the development and adoption of climate-resilient food systems”. The project is jointly implemented by a consortium of CGIAR centres (IITA, CIAT, ICRAF, Bioversity, and ILRI) in partnership with NARO, Makerere University, government ministries/departments, national climate change units, civil society organizations and other private sector agencies in Uganda and Tanzania.

The overall objective of the study is to assess to what extent gender aspects have been included in climate change related policies, to identify gaps, and to determine how eventual gender gaps impact on climate change adaptation.

months each at Wageningen University (the Netherlands) for proposal development, training courses, and scientific writing.
