Climate-smart agriculture is on the agenda of many development practitioners in the agriculture/food security community, but it is often misunderstood. Investing in climate-smart agriculture isn't a one-size-fits-all approach, and closely-held (but poorly-examined) assumptions often set the tone for a multitude of bad practices.
Join Agrilinks on July 16 for a discussion about how practitioners should approach climate-smart agriculture investments, including ways to incorporate productivity, mitigation and adaptation at multiple scales.
In addition, presenters will address how the Participatory Systems Dynamics Model can be used to test assumptions and determine priorities for Mission investments. Expanding from a session at the March 2016 Zambia Climate-Smart Agriculture GLEE, this webinar will conclude with a description of how the USAID/Zambia Mission used the results of the model to prioritize investments.
Registration is now open.
Event learning objectives:
1. Reinforce the concept that CSA is an approach and not a list of practices
2. Describe the Participatory System Dynamics Model
3. Learn how the Zambia Mission applied the model’s results to prioritize investments
