Sénégal : Le partage d’expériences entre le Sénégal et la Colombie pour une agriculture climato-intelligente

Sowing unions to harvest hope : Senegal shares approaches with Colombia.

A large Senegalese delegation was visiting Colombia for a week, sharing experiences and lessons learned in climate change, agriculture and food security, and strengthening the bond of cooperation between the two countries.

A journey over 24 hours from Senegal’s capital Dakar to Colombia there was a total of 16 delegates : members of the Ministry of Agriculture, the Presidential Council, the Parliament, local authorities, the meteorological agency of Senegal, research centers, extension services, as well as farmers who were active participants within the meeting hosted in Bogota, Cauca and Valle departments to share their experiences on improving agricultural production and to discuss how to tackle climate change.

This visit organized by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) was in effort to strengthen the cooperation between Senegal and Colombia, both of which are facing similar challenges on issues such as climate variability, agriculture, and the challenge of feeding the growing population. This reunion was also an effort to continue the delegation initiated by Colombia within Senegal, in September 2013.
