Call for proposals - Innovations for smart family farming exposed to climate change in West Africa

Published : September 2019

The project on “Innovations for smart family farming exposed to climate change in West Africa” (GCCA+AO) aims to participate in West African efforts to implement the Paris Agreement on climate through capacity-building of regional institutions in West Africa. It also aims to promote the emergence of innovative solutions on the ground to strengthen climate resilience of rural and agricultural stakeholders. The ECOWAS Commission promotes “an integrated approach to processing and redirecting agricultural systems in order to durably and equitably increase agricultural productivity and income, boost adaptation and resilience against climate variability and change, and to sequester and/or reduce greenhouse gases where possible and appropriate”. It has put in place the West African Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture. This call for proposals aims to set up climate smart food production systems (mitigation and adaptation) in West Africa through experimentation (research-action4) and by capitalising innovative practices and mechanisms. A webinar will be organised on 25 September 2019 at 10:00 UTC. The deadline for submission of proposals is set on 17 October 2019, at 12:00 UTC.
