This webinar, co-hosted by GCRF-AFRICAP and Chatham House, will feature AFRICAP Chatham House fellows Agatha Kiama and Ndumiso Mazibuko and their work on creating resilient agri-food systems as well as the Hon Sindiso Ngwenya, former Secretary General of COMESA
Dr Mazibuko will speak to his work on Southern African food systems in light of climate change and Covid-19. He will take a deeper look at the interlinking issues of food security, nutrition, climate change and food systems in southern Africa and consider how practitioners and policymakers can build more equitable, resilient and better food systems. Agatha Kiama will share her research on how learning alliances can best be used as a tool to build agricultural resilience. With most African countries still struggling to adapt production systems to the impacts of climate change, the session will showcase how learning alliances can facilitate innovation by promoting dialogue and knowledge sharing, uptake or adaptation of technologies and practices, and policy engagement.
The event will close with reflections from the Hon Ngwenya and Q&A, facilitated by the event chair, Richard King.
