Abstract:Climate change poses significant threats to sustained economic growth and agricultural development, poverty reduction, food security and political stability globally, and even more so in Africa. This volume is a product of a call from OSSREA to collate evidence-based research in order to assess to what extent countries in Eastern and Southern Africa are implementing global and Africa-wide decisions concerning the need to address climate change. Contents: Theoretical underpinnings of climate compatible development and green growth in selected Eastern and Southern African countries (Truphena E. Mukuna); Mainstreaming climate adaptation into agricultural planning and development in Kenya (Christopher A. Shisanya); Climate-smart agriculture in Lesotho: initiatives and perspectives (Patrick Gwimbi); Effects of climate change on agricultural productivity across East African Countries: comparative evidence from Kenya and Uganda (Ifeanyi N. Nwachukwu and Christopher A. Shisanya); Adoption of green technologies in the public transport sector: the case of Rea Vaya BRT System, South Africa (Muchaiteyi Togo); Rural women's participation and investment in renewable energy as a low-carbon adaptation strategy: evidence from the sustainable energy project in Malawi (Charity Chonde and Harriet Chiwaula); Environmental and economic feasibility of bioethanol systems: towards climate compatible development (Riad Sultan); Climate-compatible development in the water sector of Ethiopia, Mozambique and Tanzania (Yohannes Aberra Ayele); Climate compatible strategies in planning and investment in South Africa (Theresa Moyo); Championing a green future through higher education: initiatives of selected regional research organisations in Africa (Truphena E. Mukuna); Conclusion and perspectives (Christopher A. Shisanya). [ASC Leiden abstract]
