Linking agricultural adaptation strategies and food security: Evidence from West Africa

Agricultural production in West Africa faces risks such as low adaptive capacity and high exposure to natural and anthropogenic threats. Despite the promotion of various adaptation strategies, their impact on food security is unknown.

This poster, prepared for the ILRI@40 series of events, shares finding from a multi-centre study in West Africa that aims to define food secure and food insecure household profiles, assess the current levels of adoption of adaptation strategies at household level and identify the drivers of adoption. The study will also assess the impacts of these adaptation strategies on household level food security and land productivity.
