4th Annual Progress Reporting and Coordination Meeting on CCAFS Projects and Climate-Smart Village Implementation in Southeast Asia

Event Date and time


Hanoi, Vietnam


As we are now in the second phase of CCAFS, the highlight of this annual meeting is on refocusing our R4D framework and revisiting our program’s targets. With the goal of addressing the challenges and opportunities in the region, CCAFS SEA envisions to converge the activities of its four R4D flagships in the CSVs towards an integrated set of activities and interventions. Through the presentations of significant outputs and outcomes and the discussions on gap and opportunities, CCAFS SEA will be guided towards a more integrative and effective program implementation.

Specific objectives

The one-day meeting will cover the following specific objectives:

  1. Report on the progress of activities in the CSV sites and on CCAFS project implementation in 2018;
  2. Identify the significant outputs and outcomes of FP/CSV implementation; and
  3. Share knowledge, learning, and experiences across CSVs and projects.
