This report reflects the summary of baseline findings in Malawi, under the auspices of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) Adaptation Programme in Africa. It identifies gaps in climate information access and use at the local level, types of climate services farmers and pastoralists need in Malawi, relevant channels to reach farmers with requested services, lead-time and gender-specific requirements for the design and delivery of climate services that matter to farmers.

There are real needs and opportunities for well-targeted research and development to improve the livelihoods of farmers while at the same time addressing natural resource constraints. The suitability and adoption of interventions depends on a variety of bio-physical and socio- economic factors. While their impacts -when adopted and out-scaled- are likely to be highly heterogeneous, not only spatially and temporally but also in terms of the stakeholders affected.

Taking a gender-responsive approach to Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) means that the particular needs, priorities, and realities of men and women are recognized and adequately addressed in the design and application of CSA so that both men and women can equally benefit.
The gender gap in agriculture affects how men and women access and benefit from CSA.
A gender-responsive approach to CSA addresses this gap by recognizing the specific needs and capabilities of women and men.

Relying entirely on survey information and personal exchanges with over 70 scientists from within the CGIAR network, this working paper attempts to achieve a better understanding of the scope of social learning related efforts undertaken in CGIAR and main issues of relevance to more current efforts, such as that planned by the CGIAR program on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). A wide range of methods was identified, where groups of people learn in order to jointly arrive at solutions to pressing food security problems.

The agricultural development project ACCESO
reduced greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and
led to net carbon sequestration due to perennial
? Increased fertilizer use was a moderate source
of emissions that was more than offset by
reduced emissions from other ACCESOsupported
practices, including improvements in
soil, water, and fertilizer management, and in
feed and grassland use by dairy cows.
? Compared to conventional practices, ACCESOsupported
activities reduced emission intensity
