D igital Climate Advisory Services (DCAS) are tools, platforms, or activities that integrate climate information into agricultural decision-making, helping agricultural producers and other value chain actors build resilience to the climate change impacts that threaten present and future agri-food systems. However, small-scale producers’ access to these services remains limited around the world. Scaling up efforts, while leaving no one behind, is critical to safeguarding the millions of small-scale producers vital to our global food security.

This two-day training event aimed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, best practices, and experiences, as well as to explore the latest innovations and approaches that promote the adoption of DCAS in Southern Africa.

Food security is a key pillar under the Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program (AAAP). Launched in 2021, AAAP is a joint initiative of the African Development Bank and the Global Center on Adaptation which aims to mobilize $25 billion, over five years, to accelerate and scale climate adaptation action across the continent. AAAP has already mainstreamed adaptation solutions into over $5.4 billion of investments in climate adaptation in Africa. These investments are vital for financing adaptation solutions in countries that are most exposed to the threats of climate change.
