The African Development Bank invites you to the Gobeshona Global Conference Africa session: Locally Led Action in the Agricultural Value Chain: A Pathway to Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

The session aims to highlight the important role of locally led adaptation action in the agricultural sector, from production, post-harvest to waste management and overall management of natural resources that support the agricultural system.

Specifically, policy makers will share practical examples of laws, policies and incentives they have developed to create an enabling environment for locally led adaptation, while entrepreneurs from the private sector will share information about innovative business solutions that enhance resilience, such as sustainable natural resource management and circular economy models to manage waste from agricultural residue.

Farming communities will also share their experiences on spearheading adaptive agricultural practices, while development partners will discuss financing projects that promote locally led adaptation action as well as innovative forms of climate finance that can be applied to enhance resilience and climate adaptation action.
