    CCAFS’ trajectory up to this moment: End of the TCP and beginning of a long journey
    2021
    Also available in:

    The Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP)'s Training Center for Sustainable Family Farming (CCAFS) is a result of efforts made by various actors to strengthen sustainable family farming and the development of agroecology in these countries. With the partnership established between FAO, ACTUAR, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development of São Tomé and Príncipe, the CPLP, the Alimenta CPLP!Platform, and the Mechanism for the Facilitation of Civil Society Participation in CONSAN-CPLP, CCAFS began its activities in December 2020 through a Technical Cooperation Program (TCP) between these entities. The TCP aimed to develop skills for the Training Center through various activities such as training on agroecology, webinars, the development of a digital hub for agroecology in the CPLP, newsletters, and more. With its closure in November 2021, the TCP leaves accomplished the establishment of the physical space for the Training Center in São Tomé and Príncipe and the digital hub ConectAgroecologia, both with actions aimed at promoting agroecology throughout the CPLP.

    Enhancing the Production and Consumption of Safe and High-Quality Fruit and Vegetables - GCP/INT/005/ROK 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Food insecurity, poverty, and increasing climate shocks and stresses are persistent issues faced by the agricultural sector. As the world’s population is constantly growing, more innovative approaches and efforts are required to solve these issues, without placing additional pressure on the environment or depleting natural resources. Horticultural production systems integrating advanced technologies can provide an opportunity to grow a wide range of crops with high commercial and nutritional value. However, many developing countries have not as yet begun to apply such technologies to agriculture, or are at the initial stages of their application. Against this background, the project aimed to facilitate the process of promoting the production and consumption of safe and high quality fruit and vegetables at national and international level, in order to address the pressing issues mentioned above.

    Research and Extension – TAP-AIS project webinar: Joint rapid appraisal on strengthening agricultural innovation systems in Africa, Asia and Latin America by regional research and extension organizations 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The webinar is organized in the framework of the TAP-AIS project (Developing capacities in agricultural innovation systems: scaling up the Tropical Agriculture Platform Framework) implemented by FAO’s Research and Extension Unit, and funded by the European Union as a component of the EU DeSIRA initiative. The project aims to strengthen agricultural innovation systems by promoting the capacity development framework of the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), a multi-stakeholder facilitation mechanism on capacity development for agricultural innovation systems. As part of the project, in 2020, Regional Agricultural Research and Extension Organizations (RREO) in Africa, Asia and Latin America jointly carried out rapid appraisals to scope the innovation environment and identify and document initiatives aimed at strengthening Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS). The focus of the joint rapid appraisals (JRA) was on functional capacity development with a view to exploring ways in which RREO can support the development of these capacities using TAP approaches and tools. The three regional studies were consolidated in the Synthesis report, which will be launched during this event. The main objectives of the webinar are to raise awareness and promote joint actions by RREO on strengthening capacity to innovate through integration of TAP Common Framework for capacity development. Specifically the webinar will:
    • present key findings from the Synthesis report on capacity development for innovation
    • raise awareness and advocate for joint actions by research and extension organizations
    • identify entry points for integration of Common Framework of capacity development within the programmes and projects of Regional Research and Extension Organizations.
    This webinar is open to the partners contributed to the report and other interested parties. The webinar will be in English with Spanish interpretation.
