The SEACRIFOG project promotes the EU-Africa cooperation dialogue at different levels (policy, science, society) on the following themes: land use, land use change, climate-smart agriculture, food security, carbon cycle and greenhouse gases (GHG) observations and capacity development, in order to support climate adaptation and mitigation. The project shall develop a road map towards an African network of research infrastructures (RI) for long-term observation of GHGs, climate change and environmental dynamics.
In order to engage relevant stakeholders from Africa and EU, we organized 3 stakeholder consultation workshops. In total, 73 participants from 33 organizations attended the three stakeholder’s workshops (held in Kenya in May 2017, Ghana in June 2017, and Zambia in April 2018). During the world café, the participants shared their knowledge about: 1) Land use change implications on food security, 2) GHG observations, carbon stocks and climate change mitigation, 3) Clime-smart agriculture in Africa. This report summarizes the main outcomes of these participatory events.
