Strategy which outlines key priority areas of intervention in order to manage the risks posed by climate change. The goal as stated in the strategy document is “to ensure progress towards eradication of poverty and contribute to sustainable improvement in people’s livelihoods taking into account CRMA”. Specific objectives of the CRMA are to reduce vulnerability within the Regional Member Countries (RMCs) to climate variability and promote climate resilience in past and future Bank financed development investments making them more effective.

If the ultimate effect of climate change and variability is not attended to, it may contribute to political instability and migration, at both intra-and regional levels. A recent survey conducted by IFPRI with the support of World Bank identified migration as one of the major adaptation strategies among the communities in semiarid environments (World Bank 2000; IFPRI 2010). A number of regions/subregions across SSA have just emerged from, or are experiencing conflicts. A new wave of ecological refugees will spark a series of conflicts among communities and complicating the development agenda of several SSA countries, if there is no action to reduce the effects of climate change now (UNFCCC 2007).

Research capacity-building activities in Kenya and Hamburg celebrated. • Final CALESA workshop in Kenya conducted. • Several articles in scientific journals and books published. • A book focusing on the CALESA project published. Some Lessons Learnt Adapting Agriculture Practices to Climate Change The studies conducted under this project provided greater insights into how farming systems under varying climatic conditions respond to the variability in the climate. Therefore, it was possible to produce good leads on the identification of options for adapting the systems to future climate changes.
