The objectives of the workshop are:

- Taking advantage of lessons learnt in different contexts in the region to stimulate agricultural resilience to climate change
- Identifying the main relevant actors in mitigating and adapting to climate change in agriculture and creating collaborations and knowledge transfers between them
- Strengthening the political compromise in the region to incentivize climate change-resilient agriculture that contributes to food security and ensures the right to food
The workshop targets representatives from public institutions, elected authorities, universities and research centers, and regional and civil society organizations who are dedicated, have relevant experience and knowledge in promoting climate change-resilient agriculture in the region.
