South Africa Committed to Climate Change Interventions in the Agricultural Sector | Climate Change/Global Warming/Food SecurityPamela Ngqinani
South Africa prioritized the reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases in the global fight against climate change. As a result, South Africa identified seven Climate Change Flagship Programs including the Agriculture, Food Systems and Food Security Flagship Program. The agriculture climate change program seeks to enhance agricultural productivity and climate resilience by decoupling agricultural growth from increase greenhouse gas emissions through Climate Smart Agricultural production systems. The need to support and train South Africa’s extension practitioners on Climate Smart Agriculture was identified as the immediate priority by the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development. Post works with various institutions in South Africa to support more Climate Smart Agricultural practices, including through fellowship programs, biotechnology seminars, and cooperative research and exchange programs.
