Africa Climate Smart Agriculture Summit 2018

The inaugural Africa Climate Smart Agriculture Summit took place on 15-16 May at 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya. The Summit united senior representatives from governments, UN and donor agencies, farmers’ associations, cooperatives, NGOs and CBOs, research institutes, investors and the private sector to look at innovations, partnerships and financing to advance climate smart agriculture in East Africa.  

The agenda will looked at scaling the adoption of innovations in CSA practices, resilient agricultural systems to address climate change, supporting and enabling policy frameworks, and securing financial investment for CSA.

By offering keynote addresses, panel discussions and interactive roundtable sessions, the Africa Climate Smart Agriculture Summit enabled robust debates on sustainable agricultural transformation and innovations in seed technology, soil and drought management in the region.
