We are experimenting with co-production of participatory gender and climate change research tools by using collaborative processes for developing a manual that organizations can use to design gender and climate-smart programs.
For planners and researchers alike, participation and co-production have always been attractive approaches. In CCAFS we are using the concepts to revise the design of our participatory research manual on gender and climate change.
While there are many typologies of participation and co-production, the recent aim of CCAFS theme Linking Knowledge to Action was to engage male and female smallholder farmers, NGO field workers, climate scientists and research partners in collaboratively producing research instruments on climate information services. The process of engaging these diverse stakeholders has in itself been a learning experience on how to build capacity and share knowledge. This is how some of it unfolded.
Youth need to participate in agriculture lest East Africa faces food insecurity in the future, participants at the International Symposium and Exhibition on Agricultural Development in the region have warned...
.."The average age of farmers in the region is about 60 years. This implies that low degree of youth participation in agriculture is a critical threat to food security in the near future"...."Our young people still look at agriculture as a punishment. We need to quickly address challenges like high costs of production in terms of mechanised farming".
In the EAC alone, the agricultural sector contributes about 42 per cent of Burundi's GDP, 28 per cent in Tanzania, 25 per cent in Uganda, 28 per cent in Kenya and 32 per cent in Rwanda.
