Central Asia Climate Smart Agriculture Workshop, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, 12/07/2016 - 14/07/2016
Addressing the interlinked challenges of food security, climate change, DRR and Energy through an integrated climate smart agriculture approach
Countries covered by the workshop: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan
Scope and purpose
Although relatively new, Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) is attracting increasing interest and attention in various parts of the world including in Central Asia. FAO and other partners have a number of on-going and forthcoming projects which deal with different aspects of the CSA approach. Given the importance of conceiving and planning well integrated interventions capturing synergies and avoiding trade-offs, the workshop is intended to bring together different national and regional stakeholders to raise the understanding and capacity to undertake CSA approaches as well as determine collective priority interventions at national and regional levels and how these will relate to ongoing and new projects. In addition participants will be introduced to relevant international processes, such as the Global Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) and how they can interact and be involved in its various components (in particular the action groups). Conference participants will identify key gaps and barriers for achieving identified priority areas and prioritise the needed knowledge, tools and technical support and interventions which should be addressed through collective efforts. The conference in particular will support and feed into the implementation of a number of new projects including the Second Phase of the Central Asian Countries Initiative for Land Management (CACILM-II) and FAO’s Economics and Policy Innovations for Climate-Smart Agriculture (EPIC) programme.
