Climate-Smart Nutrition Security in Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa faces a unique set of challenges, including a high prevalence of malnutrition, poverty, and susceptibility to the impacts of climate change and population growth. “Climate-smart nutrition security” becomes the best strategies and initiative that aim to address the challenges posed by climate change to nutrition security, particularly in vulnerable regions.

Promote diversification of food systems, resilient crops; implement sustainable agriculture; manage water effectively; provide education on nutrition; establish social protection programs; enhance market access; invest in rural infrastructure; support research and innovation; advocate for climate-smart policies; foster international cooperation to address climate change impacts on nutrition security in sub-Saharan Africa. Integrating these strategies, stakeholders can work towards building a resilient and sustainable food system that ensures nutrition security in the face of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa.

Climate-smart nutrition security requires a multidimensional approach involving government agencies, non-governmental organizations, research institutions, and local communities to work together towards the same goal.

A team of scientists around the globe including a scientist from Sokoine University of Agriculture used an integrated assessment framework (iFEED) to explore stakeholder-driven scenarios of food system transformation toward climate-smart nutrition security in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia. iFEED translates climate–food–emissions modeling into policy-relevant information using model output implication statements.

The team revealed that diversifying agricultural production towards more micronutrient-rich foods is necessary to achieve an adequate population-level nutrient supply by mid-century. Agricultural areas must expand unless unprecedented rapid yield improvements are achieved.
