From Agriculture and Rural Development Day to Agriculture, Landscapes and Livelihoods Day
This year's event Agriculture, Landscapes and Livelihoods Day 5 (ALL-5 Day): Solutions for People in Drylands and Beyond will replace the Agriculture and Rural Development Day (ARDD) which has been held for the previous four years. The aim is to add value to the climate debate, and help discussions progress by leveraging the collective expertise and knowledge that event participants bring to the table.
The event will provide a forum to exchange knowledge and experiences, and aims to identify:
Roundtable sessions will allow participants to exchange ideas and identify possible solutions, areas for action and challenges, and an Ideas Marketplace will allow participants to highlight specific activities and innovations that can contribute to solutions.
Registration will open on the ALL-5 Day website on 15 October. You can pre-register here to be notified when registration opens:
- Existing, large-scale solutions to specific mitigation and adaptation challenges that can benefit farmers, in particular small scale farmers
- Gaps with limited existing solutions or limited available knowledge
- Potential trade-offs in implementing existing, known solutions
With only a few days left until the Agriculture, Landscapes and Livelihoods Day 5 event, momentum is building on agriculture and climate change issues.
The updated ALL5 Day programme is now online, as well as full details about all the roundtable sessions and ideas marketplace.
You are about to join 500 policy makers, farmers, scientists, development experts, and journalists in Doha for the Agriculture, Landscapes and Livelihoods Day 5. The event will provide a venue to engage with key stakeholders and decision makers, and develop solutions that can feed into 2013 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) discussions.
This year’s event aims to identify existing, large scale solutions to specific mitigation and adaptation challenges that can benefit farmers, in particular small scale farmers; gaps where there are limited existing solutions or limited available knowledge; and potential trade-offs in implementing existing, known solutions.
