This policy document provides the following key messages to decision makers in Africa:
-Even without the effects of climate change, the agricultural sector in Africa is facing numerous challenges that are responsible for its perennially low productivity.
-Climate change and climate variability threaten to diminish the ability of African agricultural producers to provide enough food for the expanding population of Africa.
-Many win-win options exist to help the agricultural sector in Africa adapt to climate change.
-The African Climate Policy Centre has an important role to play in facilitating considerations of these options.
