FANRPAN to participate In the African Union NEPAD – INGO Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Alliance Workshop
Lusaka, Zambia
2 February 2015 - 10 February 2015


FANRPAN CEO, Dr Lindiwe Majele Sibanda and Mr Talentus Mthunzi (Programme Assistant) will participate in the upcoming African Union NEPAD - INGO Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Alliance Workshop to be held in Lusaka, Zambia from 02 - 10 February. The Workshop is a critical milestone in consolidating and operationalizing of the NEPAD-iNGO CSA Alliance Program of work.

When the African Heads of State and Government met in Malabo, June 2014, they made a commitment to rally, political, technical and financial resources and actioned to support the empowerment of farmers and local communities to ensure the necessary capacity to adapt to and/or mitigate the effects of climate change. The heads of state and Government endorsed the African Union Vision which aims to support at least 25 million farm households in practicing CSA by 2025. The NEPAD-iNGO CSA Alliance is a unique collaborative innovation and partnership launched in June 2014 in the margins of the 31st African Union Heads of State and Government Summit. It is one of the key programmes which will champion on the ground implementation support towards the attainment of the Africa Union Vision on CSA.

The African Union NEPAD-iNGO Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Alliance Workshop to be held from the 2nd to the 10th of February 2015 in Lusaka Zambia is a critical milestone in consolidating and operationalizing of the NEPAD-iNGO CSA Alliance Program of work. The delegates will deliberate on how the Alliance will achieve the target of 6 million farm households practicing CSA by 2021.

The participation of various stakeholders in this workshop of which FANRPAN is one, is expected to greatly inform the discussions and agreements; validate the alliance’s problem statement and associated theory of change in light of national and regional level priorities and expressed needs; and expose opportunities for collaboration and partnerships, while at the same time contributing to fostering the continental-level drive and movement on CSA.
