Technical Workshop on the Climate Smart Agriculture

Co-hosted by PAPAC and IFPRI, a Technical Workshop on Climate Smart Agriculture: New Tools and Technologies in Tanzania was held at the New Africa Hotel, Dar es Salaam, on 29-30 September 2015. More than 40 participants from the Ministry of Agriculture, academia, and private sector interactively reviewed analyses presented by researchers from IFPRI, Jawoo Koo and Alex De Pinto, on the basics of climate smart agriculture (CSA), science behind the climate change impact analysis, assessments of land-use changes and investment priorities in terms of three pillars of CSA, and the potential impacts of promising CSA technologies in Tanzania.

All workshop materials and underlying data were distributed to participants ahead of the workshop and posted to the PAPAC Knowledge Base website at http://papac.info. Accompanying interactive data visualization tools were also developed using Tableau (e.g., climate projections at country and district-level, climate change impacts on crop productivity, and the potential impacts of CSA technology adoption), for participants to further investigate the analysis data presented in the workshop for their own areas of interest.
