Launched upstream of COP22 organized in Morocco, the initiative for the Adaptation of African Agriculture (AAA) aims to reduce the vulnerability of Africa and its agriculture to climate change.
It promotes and fosters the implementation of specific projects to improve soil management, agricultural water control, climate risk management and capacity building & funding solutions.
The initiative is an important response not only to climate change, but also to food insecurity.
Its objective is to place the Adaptation of African Agriculture at the heart of climate debates and negotiations, and to attract a substantial share of climate funds. As for the solutions, it also aims to contribute to the roll-out of specific agricultural projects.
The Adaptation of African Agriculture was identified as one of the priorities of the Moroccan presidency for COP22. To date, the initiative is actively supported by 25 African countries, the UNFCCC, and the FAO
