**This event has been postponed until 31 March 2021 with respect for the 14-day period of mourning for Tanzania's late President John Magufuli.
There is significant focus on achieving and upscaling climate-smart agriculture (CSA), with particular emphasis on delivering benefits to smallholder farmers. Despite the high level of knowledge around what technologies and practises work on the ground, there is poor understanding of how smallholder farmers access beneficial outcomes, and how to effectively implement CSA at scale.
This webinar focusses on AFRICAP’s research into CSA implementation in Tanzania, featuring presentations by University of Leeds researchers Dr Susannah Sallu, Dr Harriet Smith, and Marta Gaworek-Michalczenia. Drawing on empirical research and ongoing collaborative work with project partners in Tanzania, speakers will discuss some of the approaches and outcomes of implementing CSA, explore who does and does not benefit from programme implementation and why, and raise questions about the viability of and challenges with global ambitions to upscale CSA.
Following research presentations, seminar discussants Dr John Recha (Scientist for the CGIAR research programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security, International Livestock Research Institute) and Mr Prosper Makundi (Acting Head of Environment Management Unit, Ministry of Agriculture, Tanzania) will provide a reflective response, situating AFRICAP’s research within the broader ambitions for upscaling Climate-Smart Agriculture across East and Southern Africa as well as the national policy context in Tanzania.
The event will close with a Q&A, facilitated by the event chair Ms. Sithembile Mwamakamba (Director of Policy Research and Analysis at Food and Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network, FANRPAN).
This webinar is part of the GCRF-AFRICAP annual seminar series. For more events on climate resilience and food security, visit our website at https://africap.info.
