|Dr Mark Msaki presents key CSA findings from Tanzania|
25 November 2014. Johannesburg, RSA. [email protected] A group of African negotiators are currently negotiating Africa’s position on CC at the UNFCCC and need evidence to support their arguments.
This side event brought together the experts notably from NARIs engaged in climate change issues and policy makers in Africa to a dialogue on:
- Creating awareness among NARIs and policy makers on the need to scale up CSA practices among 6 million small holder households as a way of contributing to the 25 million target by 2015
- Identifying climate change issues in country investment that NARIs can develop CSA technologies to address
- Identifying areas of CSA that can be integrated in the national agricultural research programs of the NARIs
- Identifying key entry points in the NAIPs for NARI CSA interventions
