Three days of in-person exchanges and learning!

Resilient Food Systems (RFS) country project representatives, partners and Consultative Committee members, along with other practitioners and stakeholders, are invited to attend the RFS Final Workshop, to be combined with a Science-Policy Learning Day capitalizing on RFS learnings for improved policy advocacy in Africa.

Pre-workshop activities will start on 6 June with the Science-Policy Learning Day, co-hosted with the African Union Commission. This will be a dedicated space for programme stakeholders to engage with key stakeholders working on food systems transformation in the continent and exchange knowledge on best practices, methods, tools and evidence-based solutions that can impact policy directives for strengthening institutional frameworks for resilient food systems.

Informed by proceedings from this initial discussion, the Resilient Food Systems Final Workshop will then take place on 7-8 June 2023. It will provide opportunities to:

  • Present the RFS final publication on programmatic lessons learned and discuss its key messages.
  • Take stock of the preliminary findings of the RFS final evaluation, whilst further informing its content.
  • Facilitate practical learning and peer exchange through a field trip hosted by the RFS Kenya project team – Upper Tana Nairobi Water Fund.
  • Celebrate RFS successes and reflect on the programme’s legacy, including how this can inform other initiatives, such as the forthcoming GEF-8 Food Systems Integrated Program.
  • Hold the final Consultative Committee meeting (for designated representatives only).
