We are thrilled to invite you to join the event on ‘Fostering agricultural innovation for people, nature and climate in Africa’, which will be held during the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow (1-12 November 2021). The event will be held virtually in the Blue Zone on Tuesday November 9th between 13:15 and 14:15 (GMT). The session is jointly organised by UK Research Innovation, Global System for Mobile Communications (GSMA), and the World Bank.
This event will explore how to scale investments and innovations to address climate change in African agriculture through both the public and private sector action, in line with the COP26 campaign on Transforming Agricultural Innovation for People, Nature and Climate. It will interrogate how such action can ensure that the most vulnerable smallholders, in particular women, aren’t left behind. This event will showcase investment, technological and non-technological innovations, and how they can best be scaled up to meet the growing needs for adaptation and resilience in African agriculture.
The event is to be held as part of the Resilience Hub activities at the UN Climate Change Conference. Home of Race to Resilience at COP26, the Resilience Hub is designed to advance action on adaptation and resilience and to help set the direction for future action on adaptation and resilience beyond COP26.
