South Africa committed to climate change intervention in its agricultural sector by introducing the Agriculture, Food Systems and Food Security Flagship Program. The goal of the program is to enhance agricultural productivity and climate resilience at all scales of production and to reduce greenhouse gases and increase agricultural competitiveness.
