The Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) pilot program that is coordinated by the Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA) is part of a regional undertaking involving five (5) Member States (MS). The other MS are Uganda, Seychelles, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. The new program will be implemented during the period 2018-2020. The programme is funded by the EU under the Intra Africa, Caribbean and Pacific countries (Intra ACP) Global Climate Change Alliance plus (GCCA+) programme. This programme provides support to countries in the ACP regions to manage the climate change challenges that hinder development.
