Climate smart agricultural technologies are aimed at reducing the impacts on this global menace on farmer’s thereby boosting productivity to enhance income and increase accessibility and availability of quality food for all. CSATs also enhance resilience through adaptation strategies to minimize the impacts of climate change. However, the adoption of CSATs are hampered by limited access to information available, education level, social life, experience and cultural differences. To increase and surmount this menace, more awareness and enlightenment campaigns, local engagement of community leaders, more women participation and financial incentives should also be promoted and provided to encourage adoption of CSATs
