The launch brought together a diverse group of stakeholders from the National Climate-Smart Agriculture forum and other pertinent stakeholders such as policymakers, researchers, development partners, private businesses, NGOs and civil society organizations.  The primary objective of the workshop was to launch the Ethiopia CSAIP and highlight the crucial role of the national Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) forum in driving its implementation.

The CSAIP is an integral component of the Accelerating Impacts of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA) project funded by the World Bank. AICCRA leverages partnerships to validate and enhance the application of climate-smart technologies and practices in the East Africa region. As such, the Ethiopian CSAIP was developed through a collaborative initiative between the Ministry of Agriculture and the Alliance, undertaken through a consultative process.

The CSAIP lays out a comprehensive investment portfolio that can be a case-use for tangible and bankable projects that can potentially address various challenges in the agricultural sector of Ethiopia. It identifies key areas of investment including the livestock value chain, improved forage production, small-scale irrigation using renewable energy sources, improved crop varieties, bundled climate information services (CIS) and agro-advisory services with insurance and implementation of Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM).
