    The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects an
    ambition to further integrate agricultural development and
    climate responsiveness. CSA aims to achieve food security
    and broader development goals under a changing climate
    and increasing food demand. CSA initiatives sustainably
    increase productivity, enhance resilience, and minimize
    greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions. Increased planning is
    vital in order to address tradeoffs and synergies between
    the three pillars: productivity, adaptation, and mitigation

    Eastern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Africa, Tanzania

    The Tanzania Africa Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation (Africa RISING) Baseline Evaluation Survey (TARBES) was implemented during February-April 2014 as part of the International Food Policy Research Institute’s Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of Africa RISING. The Africa RISING program aims to create—through action research and development partnerships—opportunities for smallholder farmers in Africa south of the Sahara to sustainably intensify their farming systems and to improve their food, nutrition, and income security.

    This policy briefs presents smallholder farmers' preferences and major challenges when accessing seed in Uganda. It reflects on the weaknesses of the formal and informal seed production and distribution systems and presents some practical recommendations for putting in place alternative and integrative seed quality control systems that can help fill in the gaps that the formal and informal systems cannot address separately.

    ? The Rwanda Dairy Competitiveness Program II

    (RDCP) was estimated to have resulted in a

    strong decrease in the GHG emissions intensity

    of milk production, defined as the GHG

    emissions per unit (liter) of milk produced.

    Extensive cattle production systems reduced

    their GHG emission intensity by an estimated -

    4.11 tCO2e per 1000 l of milk (-60%), while

    intensive production systems reduced their

    intensity by an estimated -1.7 tCO2e/1000 l (-

    47%). The decrease in GHG emission intensity

    Kenya, Africa, Eastern Africa

    The agricultural development project Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth (REGAL-AG) has promoted improved livestock management that resulted in a decrease in net emissions of 10%. Since emissions from livestock account for the majority of Kenya’s agricultural emissions (95%), reduction of emissions in the livestock sector has high potential impact.

    Pastoralist Areas Resilience Improvement

    through Market Expansion (PRIME) showed a

    notable decrease in emission intensity (GHG

    emissions per unit of meat or milk). PRIME

    enabled farmers to increase production

    significantly, between 24% and 96%, which led

    to a decrease in emission intensity ranging from

    -4% to -42%.

    ? Due to improvements in feed quantity, PRIME

    projected an increase in average animal weight

    for all livestock (8.3 million head), which resulted

    in an increase in GHG emissions by an
