Improve Your Yield with Climate-Smart Agriculture

September 23, 2015


We sat down with two members of the USAID Economic Development team to talk about Climate-Smart Agriculture.  Brian Martalas is an Agriculture Officer and Feed the Future Coordinator at USAID.  Harry Ngoma a Food Security Specialist at USAID. Harry and Brian explained to us that climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is an integrative approach to farming that addresses interlinked challenges of food security and climate change. CSA aims to sustainably increase agricultural productivity, to support equitable increases in farm incomes, food security and building resilience of agricultural and food security systems to climate change.
