This study reviews evidence on the practice, outcomes, and future potential of CA in sub-Saharan Africa as an approach to increasing food security, alleviating poverty, conserving biodiversity and ecosystem services, and supporting climate change adaptation and mitigation at local to global scales. The study was conducted by EcoAgriculture Partners in conjunction with CARE, WWF, and the World Agroforestry Centre to assist CARE, WWF, and their Alliance in developing an Africa-wide strategy for incorporating CA more effectively into their projects, programs, and policy advocacy work. Research methods included an extensive literature review, interviews, field visits to four CA projects in Tanzania and Mozambique, and critical analysis of these data to assess the most promising opportunities for CA in sub-Saharan Africa.
