  1. Provide a Regional perspective of the climate risks to crop production and post-harvest loss management.
    • Regional and national overview; and
    • Specific focus on the Groundnut Value Chain and aflatoxin contamination
  2. Provide a status update on the on-going FANRPAN projects focussing on PHLM.
  3. Chart a way forward for developing synergies among different stakeholders and sectors, with the aim of maintaining continuous dialogue on climate risks to crop production and post-harvest loos management including Aflatoxin issues.
  4. Deliberate on means to facilitate community-driven information and knowledge sharing platforms for risk management.
  5. Identify priority CSA and PHM policies and technologies relevant for the country
  6. Solicit policy recommendations from stakeholders
Expected Outcomes
