Abstract: Climate resilient agriculture (CRA) projects like watershed restoration efforts can enhance agricultural systems' resilience to climate change and extreme weather shocks by improving soil health and grain yields in vulnerable communities. One such project, Wellness and Agriculture for Life Advancement (WALA) implemented watershed restoration across eight districts in southern Malawi from 2009 to 2014 to improve degraded soils and boost grain yields. Yet, rigorous analyses of soil health and grain yield impacts of CRA projects remain limited in southern Malawi, other dryland areas of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and elsewhere.
