Extreme weather events and climate change at large are increasingly compromising humanity’s ability to feed itself, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Resilient food value chains can mitigate the food system’s roles as both a victim and driver of climate change. As such, it can offer food security and low-carbon development pathways out of poverty for millions of poor households. However, developing these complex systems calls for collaboration among the various stakeholders in the value chain, including farmers, agribusinesses, VET providers, governments, research institutions and CSOs.

This multi-stakeholder session will explore the challenges and solutions to the many parts of the puzzle that constitute climate-resilient development for rural communities in SSA.
