ESRF, FANRPAN and CARE International Organize a Dialogue on Climate Smart Agriculture.

    In June 4, 2018, the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) in partnership with the Food Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) and CARE International organized a joint policy dialogue on “Climate Smart Agriculture in Tanzania”

    The Dialogue attracted agricultural stakeholders in Tanzania aimed at raising awareness on the impacts of climate change on Tanzanian agriculture, food systems and the space of climate smart Agriculture. The Policy Dialogue came into being due to the prevailing situation of the world today whereby environmental degradation and climate change have been some of the most pressing challenges.

    In African countries, climate change is apparently manifested through its destructive impacts on agriculture and food systems. In curbing the situation, African countries have opted to adopt Climate- Smart Agriculture (CSA) approach which is imperative for reducing the distrustful impacts of climate change on food supplies, livelihoods and economies.

    Furthermore the CSA is vital for increasing adaptive capacity of African farming communities to hostile weather patterns and climatic conditions. The Climate Smart Agriculture dialogue was built on the United Nations Conference on Climate Change which was held in Bonn, Germany from April 30 – May 10, 2018
