UNU-INRA and ACPC are implementing a research project entitled: ‘Climate Change Agricultural Trade and Food Security in ECOWAS’.
The two-year, four-phase project aims at assessing whether agricultural production systems and trade policies in ECOWAS can be adjusted to alleviate the impact of climate change on food security and promote sustainable development in the region.
The outputs of the research project will be used to support the effort of ACPC in increasing the capacity of ECOWAS to be able to mainstream appropriate climate change information into policies, development plans and frameworks to respond to the current and future impacts of climate change in the agricultural sector.
