We are excited to bring you a webinar on: Bridging the science-policy gap through an online knowledge sharing platform.
This webinar will present the Climate and Agriculture Network for Africa (CANA); an online knowledge sharing platform that brings together players in the region working on the common topics of climate science and agriculture. The webinar is open to all those interested in actively sharing emerging knowledge and experiences on climate change and agriculture in Africa with key decision makers. Scientists, Communicators/ Information Specialists, Decision Makers and other interested people working on climate science, agriculture/ food security are welcome to sign up.
The Climate and Agriculture Network for Africa (CANA) is a knowledge sharing web based platform by a network of partners drawn from the region. CANA brings together policy makers, researchers and practitioners within climate science and agriculture who are seeking to build resilience within African agriculture. The platform fills an important niche by linking climate change and agriculture policy processes with key research and development actors from Africa. The platform will ensure timely sharing and access to information by partners involved. Currently, the CANA platform has 28 registered network organizations but the number is expected to grow in the future. CANA promotes collaboration amongst institutions and partners online and will bring together an increasing group of players within the climate change and agriculture sectors to be involved in conversations on the establishment of best practices for African agriculture.
Key themes in CANA include:
- Building resilience to climate change
- Low emissions development
- Financing climate adaptation
- Policies for adaptation
- Climate-Smart Agriculture
- Gender and Equity
We propose to hold a series of online training sessions to open up CANA for use amongst the increasing group of players within climate science and agriculture sectors.
