The advisory board of AfricaInteract Project held its last regular session on March 13, 2015 in Nairobi at the end of the international conference that brought together all stakeholders and partners.
Orientation member of the Continental AfricaInteract project, the Advisory Board consists of 7 members and 5 observers reviewed the results of the project, which ends after 4 years of implementation.
The advisory board presided by the Executive Director of FARA commended the work done by the Regional Coordinator Dr Abdulai Jalloh, Programme Manager of Natural Resources Management Programme of CORAF/WECARD and regional focal points.
The general and specific objectives of the project and the achievements were presented by the Regional Coordinator.
The project helped to facilitate interaction between researchers and African policy makers on issues of climate change adaptation; knowledge has been identified and made available in multiple formats to sensitize all stakeholders and partners on the threats of climate change and especially on the solutions to adapt to climate change.
Dr. Yemi Akinbamijo, Executive Director of FARA is committed to capitalizing on the results of the AfricaInteract project through the activities of the new continental project on climate-smart agriculture funded by Norway for two years.
