Climate change brings a cascade of risks from physical impacts on (agro-)ecosystem, agricultural production, and food chains to economic and social impacts on livelihoods, income and trade, food security and nutrition (FAO, 2016). Similarly, Africa‟s population continues to grow with an estimated annual growth of 2.4% and the population is predicted to double its current 0.9 billion people by 2050. Thus Africa‟s agriculture must undergo a significant transformation to meet the simultaneous challenges of climate change, food insecurity, poverty and environmental degradation.
The study in view of this employed both quantitative and qualitative research (mixed methods) approaches for data collection and analyses. The scope of the study was narrowed down to 6 sub counties with 134 questionnaires administered to beneficiaries together with 2 focus group discussions (FGDs) and 4 key informant interviews (KIIs) were held to improve reliability of information gathered. Data collected helped determine the impact of KCEP-CRAL among beneficiaries alongside resilient practices, challenges to adoption as well as impact on food and nutrition security.
