EA Futures for Non-State Actors

East Africa Strategic Futures Workshop for Non-State Actors in cooperation with The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) - Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and food Security (CCAFS)

The CGIAR Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), involves various stakeholders to integrate their knowledge and needs into tools and approaches to address food security, livelihoods, and governance within the context of climate change. East Africa is one of three regions under this initiative.

CCAFS and the Regional office of the Society for International Development for Eastern Africa (SID-EA) collaborated to invite experts and members of leading institutions in civil society and the private sector to take part in the East Africa Strategic Non-State Actors Workshop in Nairobi. The workshop specifically set out to train regional actors in the development and use of CCAFS scenarios, as an important decision making tool. It also sought to create a vision for the region’s future in terms of food security, environments and livelihoods in collaboration with non-state actors’.
