New district-level meeting platform will help scientists, traditional authorities and organisations share climate knowledge, tools and lessons learned for a more food secure and resilient region.

 

An immense science-policy exchange project is now in full speed as it recently launched its first out of three district-level platforms for scientists, service providers and traditional village authorities for the Bougouni region, 170 km southeast of Mali's capital Bamako.

 

The platform, officially called “Jèkafo Blomba” meaning “dialogue platform” in the regional dialect Bambara, is envisioned to become a vibrant knowledge-sharing hub, where key regional stakeholders will get together every three months to share news and concerns related to climate change and agriculture in the region.

 

The project is led by the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-arid Tropics (ICRISAT) project as part of CCAFS new flagship on Institutions and Policies for Climate-Resilient Food-Systems, and its West Africa program.

 

A knowledge platform for policy change

 

Participants will be able to discuss food-related matters such as food-value chain and processing issues, how to expand and improve markets in the region, and find ways to successfully create climate-resilient food systems.

 

The overall goal is to make climate change a key issue in district-level food security policies, and present possible solutions and ways forward for the country, for example through the use of climate-smart agriculture practices and technologies.
