Based on the already existing impacts of climate change, agro-ecological systems in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are the most vulnerable. This situation is further exacerbated by the high levels of poverty and weak infrastructure, with SSA grappling with food and nutrition insecurity, in the face of a growing population. Against this background, there is need to understand the social, economic and environmental factors that make farming rural households vulnerable. These factors consequently compromise smallholder famers’ agriculture production systems and food and nutrition security status in the short, medium and long term.
