On 13 October, as part of the programme of the FAO’s Science and Innovation Forum, DeSIRA-LIFT and the department for International Partnerships (DG INTPA) of the European Commission organise a webinar entitled “Strengthening Agricultural Innovation Systems: Learning from Past and Present Research Interventions”.
Stakeholders in the area of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) are converging in Accra, Ghana during 14-16 September 2022 to discuss innovative and sustainable solutions to challenges of climate change in African agriculture.
One of DeSIRA-LIFT’s key mandates is to support research infrastructure conducive to innovation, particularly in African countries. More specifically, DeSIRA-LIFT’s Service Area 2 works to support FARA, AFAAS, ASARECA, CCARDESA and CORAF (collectively known as CAADP-XP4 organizations) playing a key role in Africa’s agricultural knowledge and innovation systems.
The One Planet Fellowship is a career accelerator designed to enhance the capacity of high potential agricultural researchers focused on climate change adaptation, by building their leadership, scientific research, networking, and mentoring skills.
Are you interested in hearing experts’ reflections on the implications of the EU Green Deal for food systems in Africa? Join us during this side event organized by DeSIRA-LIFT on behalf of FARA, DG INTPA and Agrinatura.
