Over the three-year USAID African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) program, the team used rigorous data analysis to advise USAID Missions and implementing partners on best practices for agriculture and food security programming.
ARCC’s Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments (CCVAs) help the development community understand the extent to which people dependent on agriculture-based livelihoods are likely to be affected by climate change. These assessments were designed to establish an understanding of current climate conditions, make projections on possible future conditions, and apply this knowledge to agriculture, food security, biodiversity and other sectoral development priorities. During this event, lessons learned were discussed and formally presented as a “Compendium of Lessons Learned from ARCC Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments.”
Throughout this Agrlinks special event, panelists shared the key lessons they learned when designing and implementing climate change and agriculture-based livelihood vulnerability assessments. They also discussed results—uptake and utilization—that contribute to successful climate-resilient agricultural and food security policies and programs.
