The Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT through the CGIAR Initiative on Climate Resilience (ClimBeR) in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development through its Climate Change Unit (MOALD-CCU),  and the Climate-Smart Agriculture Multistakeholder Platform (CSA-MSP) Technical Working Group 5 on Social Inclusivity, with the support of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), have been developing a Climate, Peace and Security in the Agricultural Sector training module.

This module aims to improve the understanding of the climate, peace, and security nexus within the agricultural sector, with a specific focus on climate-smart agriculture (CSA). Climate-smart agriculture offers a holistic approach to transform agricultural systems and address the relationship between agriculture and climate change. By promoting sustainable agricultural practices, linking adaptation to mitigation opportunities, and building resilience, climate-smart agricultural practices can have a positive contribution on preventing and mitigating conflict risks. 

Consequently, integrating climate-smart agriculture measures with peacebuilding and conflict-sensitive approaches can stabilize food production and reduce the strain on natural resources, preventing maladaptation.
