The overall goal of this training was to gather key USAID staff and Implementing Partners (IPs) working on food security issues in Malawi to share and document ways to integrate agriculture, climate change, and environment. The training invited participants united by the shared objective of improving agricultural resiliency to climate change, including participants from USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA)/Food for Peace programs, USAID's Bureau for Food Security’s Feed the Future activities, and USAID's global climate change programs. The Climate, Agriculture, and Environment Training helped project developers and IPs understand the connections between food security and environmental degradation, and climate change, and gave the participants a chance to practically incorporate their learning into their work plans.

This training took place in Liwonde, Malawi the 24th-28th of October 2016.
