The Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA) has the pleasure to announce the launch of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) webinar series. The webinars will provide the results of the six country case studies assessing the state of CSA implementation in Costa Rica, France, Ireland, Malawi, Tanzania and Vietnam. The case studies include information gathering via stakeholder engagement and dialogue. The objectives of the webinar are to provide an open forum to discuss the extent to which existing national policies, programmes and strategies promote CSA practice in those countries and to identify the challenges and barriers that exist towards the adoption of CSA practices, and how these challenges can be overcome to increase the reach and penetration of CSA practice.
Each webinar will start with a presentation of the case study followed by interactive discussion with participants. It will last about 60-90 minutes, with 15 minutes of presentations and 45 minutes of Q&A. The webinars are free of charge and held in English.
For any questions and feedback on webinars and GACSA, please contact GACSA-Facilitation-Unit@fao.org.
