One CGIAR West and Central Africa in collaboration with CORAF hosts Updates and Consultative Workshop
One CGIAR West and Central Africa, in collaboration with the West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF), held an Update and Consultative Workshop from 13 to 14 December in Accra, Ghana. Another subregional organization in the WCA region, the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research for Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA), also attended the hybrid event. Seventy-three stakeholders—48 in-person and 25 virtual attendees—engaged in the two-day workshop, including participants from NARES, regional organizations, development partners, and government officials from Ghana—the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation (MESTI).
The workshop aimed to create awareness amongst partners and stakeholders in the WCA Region about One CGIAR’s overall research agenda in the region. It was also a forum to receive perspectives and insights from participants and share experiences and insights relating to partnerships and engagement through One CGIAR toward regional and country-level impacts.
