Researchers support district experts and farmers in Climate Risk Profiling
- Published on
The agriculture sector in Uganda is largely rain fed; this includes Nwoya District located within the Acholi sub-region, Northern Uganda. Drought and floods, exacerbated by climate change, present significant and increasing risks to agricultural production in the district, which according to the five-year district development plan employs 98 percent of the population.
The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) funds the Policy Action for Climate Change Adaptation (PACCA) project, which has mapped the climate risks of Nwoya District, as part of the situation analysis for the three-year second phase of the project. PACCA is a collaborative effort implemented by IITA, the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), Utrecht University, and local partners in Uganda and Ethiopia.
