Mark your calendar! Launch of CSA Country Case Studies Webinar Series in May and June

GACSA Enabling Environment Action Group has the pleasure to announce the launch of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) webinar series. The webinars will provide the results of the six country case studies assessing the state of CSA implementation in Costa Rica, France, Ireland, Malawi, Tanzania and Vietnam. The case studies include information gathering via stakeholder engagement and dialogue.

The country case studies are the primary focus of the GACSA Enabling Environment Action Group. However due to the cross-cutting nature of the studies all the three GACSA Action Groups are involved in the project.

The webinar will start with a presentation of the case study followed by interactive discussion with participants. It will last about 60-90 minutes, with 15 minutes of presentations and 45 minutes of Q&A.

The webinars are free of charge and held in English.
