23 March 2022, Morena Hotel, Dodoma
Objective: To share with stakeholders the outcomes of the project and discuss scale up opportunities.

The Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF), the FANRPAN node hosting institution in Tanzania will be convening a close out dialogue for the GCRF-Agricultural and Food System Resilience: Increasing Capacity and Advising Policy (AFRICAP). The £9.2 million programme has been working to make agriculture and food production in sub-Saharan Africa more productive, sustainable, and resilient to climate change.

Working with local organisations and respective government ministries in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, the programme has created an evidence base to underpin new country-specific policies in agriculture and food production. This has been achieved through three related strands – scenario planning workshops, cross-disciplinary research and our integrated assessment framework, iFEED

The ESRF will host a close out dialogue on 23 March 2022 at Morena Hotel in Dodoma, to share with stakeholders the outcomes of the project and discuss scale up opportunities. Funded by the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), the programme was launched in Tanzania by Former Hon. Minister of Agriculture Dr. Charles Tizeba, on 19th September 2018.

In Tanzania, GCRF-AFRICAP has supported the development and implementation of key national policies and programmes. ESRF, the AFRICAP lead partner in Tanzania, has led the establishment of Muheza CSA learning alliance. Tanga Region provides an interesting context in which to generate evidence to feed into District and Regional level planning, the National Climate-Smart Agriculture Learning Alliance and associated policy fora.

ESRF conducted Policy engagements in Dodoma & Tanga throughout the project lifetime and in person from 2018-2022.
