This report is from the 1st Africa Food Security & Adaptation Conference 2013, which was held in Nairobi, Kenya, 20-21 August 2013.

It then goes on to look at mainstreaming these approaches and what the implications are for future Africa food security and adaptation under increasing temperatures. The role of the private sector is considered – challenges and opportunities.
