Abstract

With the challenge of global food insecurity increasingly getting more severe, and the problem made worse by the extreme vulnerability of agriculture to climate change, climate-smart agriculture has emerged as an appropriate response aimed at minimising the harmful effect of climate change to agricultural production. This paper seeks to review the role of climate-smart agriculture in enhancing sustainable agricultural production towards attaining global food security. The paper majorly looks at the applications and benefits of climate-smart agriculture, and the constraints and limitations of climate-smart agriculture. This review sees the major strategies for mitigating the constraints in climate-smart agriculture to include, strengthening financial support mechanisms, promoting technological innovations and adoption, enhancing knowledge sharing and capacity building, promoting policy reforms and institutional support and addressing socio-cultural factors. Addressing the constraints and limitations of climate-smart agriculture and promoting its adoption at the global and local levels, are essential for achieving sustainable agricultural production, enhancing resilience, and mitigating climate change impacts.
