The SmartAgri Plan builds on the Western Cape Climate Change Response Strategy (WCCCRS 2014) and its Implementation Framework, specifically the focus area of “Food Security”. The Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs & Development Planning (DEA&DP) is responsible for the development, implementation and co-ordination of provincial climate change mitigation (low carbon) and adaptation (resilience) policies, programmes and projects across economic sectors. DEA&DP and the Western Cape Department of Agriculture collaborated closely on the SmartAgri project and DEA&DP continues to provide co-ordinating, facilitating and capacity building support in the implementation of the SmartAgri Plan within the larger provincial effort. This site provides key linkages to overarching provincial policies, processes and platforms in the climate change sphere.
