FANRPAN/KIPPRA Workshop Report
Theme: Building Climate Change Resilience in Africa's Agricultural Research Programmes
Nairobi, Kenya
14 September 2011


KIPPRA (www.kippra.org) and FANRPAN (www.fanrpan.org) are collaborating on a project "Building Climate Change Resilience in Africa's Agricultural Research Programmes". The overall goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity of agriculture research centres to mainstream climate change into their programmes, to ensure that climate variability does not undermine agriculture development in Africa, and to bridge the divide between climate science and agriculture science. The increasing global attention to agriculture and natural resources and the potential impacts of climate change on food security provides important challenges, as well as opportunities, for the sector. This meeting discussed how climate change may impact on agriculture in a Kenya/regional context.

With support from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), and the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA) jointly hosted a one-day workshop on 6th September 2011 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS), Nairobi. The aim of the workshop was to share perspectives on building climate change resilience in Kenya's agriculture. Participants were drawn from government, private sector, civil society research, academia, etc
