Ghana: un atelier regional de 3 jours pour libérer le potential de l’agriculture climate-intelligente en Afrique de l’Ouest

“Opening the sesame” of the climate-smart village model in West Africa : A three-day regional workshop in Tamale, Ghana helped to unlock the black box and unleash the potential of the climate-smart village model.

The climate-smart village model is like the “sesame” in the story of Ali Baba and the forty thieves, full of “treasures”, which, fully exploited, will help smallholder farmers adapt to climate change and achieve food security. In this case, the treasures are neither jewellery nor gold nor diamond, but climate-smart technologies, climate information services, local development plans, and knowledge and institutions.

The workshop gathered twenty-five representatives of research institutions, extension services and NGOs from Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger and Senegal. The project’s objective was to test and develop, in partnership with rural communities in West Africa, a scalable climate-smart model for agricultural development that integrates a range of innovative risk management strategies. The overall goal is to build food security, promote adaptation and strengthen resilience to climate stresses through the climate-smart village model.
