Climate change repercussions in Sub-Saharan Africa are permeating both natural and human systems in numerous ways. This paper therefore seeks to identify (1) sustainable agricultural policies and (2) natural resource management policies that would improve climate change resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa. It adopts a multi-goal policy analysis approach. The literature review on policy formulation and implementation revealed several themes, such as complex relationships between actors, disjointed policy implementations, and a one-size-fits-all approach. Furthermore, the policy analysis reveals that national policy for alternative agriculture, green economy, and agricultural and environmental schemes have different predicted outcomes in their implementations as climate change resilience strategies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Concerning agricultural policies that would enhance climate change resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa, alternative agricultural practices include dependence on recycled and green practices, animal manure, and localized and friendly land tillage. The green economy entails layered agricultural systems and the cultivation of local plants, while agri-environmental schemes encompass practices such as organic farming and crop rotation. This paper recommends a combination of national policies for alternative agriculture, the green economy, and agri-environmental schemes to build climate change resilience in agriculture and natural resource management in Sub-Saharan Africa.
