Climate adaptation interventions in smallholder agriculture

This evidence review assesses various climate adaptation interventions aimed at enhancing the resilience and sustainability of smallholder agriculture. It evaluates the effectiveness of technological, informational, and financial interventions through a selection of high-quality studies. The review finds strong support for the positive impacts of interventions such as irrigation and improved seed varieties, which consistently enhance productivity and resilience. However, the results for informational interventions like climate services and early warning systems are mixed, demonstrating varying levels of success. These findings underscore the need for targeted research to optimize the design and implementation of adaptation strategies.
