Organised byAUC, Bioversity International, Secretariats of the CBD, ITPGRFA, ABS CDI

Jointly organized with Bioversity International in cooperation with the
African Union Commission and the Secretariats of the CBD and the
International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture
(ITPGRFA). 

Expected Outcomes: Positive impact on national processes for implementation
of the Nagoya Protocol and the ITPGRFA in ways that complement and support
not only the objectives of those two agreements, but also complementary
national objectives related to agrobiodiversity conservation and sustainable
use, climate change adaptation, poverty alleviation, etc. In the period
following the workshop, national teams will continue with plans commenced
during the workshop that involve closer coordination and long term planning,
including project proposal development. Useful information and reflections
will be generated in the form of workshop report, policy briefs, and
information Sheets for national policy makers interested in linking up
national planning and policy development across a number of potential sectors
and fields of interest.

Participants included interdisciplinary teams from Benin, Burkina Faso,
Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya,
