AICRRA-Ghana launch: Fostering partnerships for technology development
On 14–16 September, the Accelerating Impact of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa-Ghana Cluster (AICCRA) was launched at the Alisa Hotel, Accra, Ghana. The project aims to bridge the gap between research institutes that produce improved technologies and development organizations that promote improved technology adoption.
The project, funded by the World Bank and led by IITA, seeks to scale the most strategic and impactful CGIAR Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)-Africa programs that promote resilience to climate change and improved food security. The focus is on six World Bank International Development Association (IDA)-eligible countries in Africa, including Ghana.
