        Confidence in the projected impacts of climate change on agricultural systems has increased substantially since the first Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. In Africa, much work has gone into downscaling global climate models to understand regional impacts, but there remains a dearth of local level understanding of impacts and communities’ capacity to adapt. We invest heavily in research on how agricultural policies and practices affect nutrition and how interventions at the farm and market levels can improve diets. This leads us to work closely with governments to translate data into evidence-based agricultural strategies and policies. Our work in this area is significantly co-financed by the UK.
