This event will engage COP27 participants in dialoguing on various sustainable and resilient agricultural innovations. One significant area of sustainable innovation in Africa’s smallholder farming sector is the use of climate-smart agricultural practices. Sustainable innovation in Africa also involves the incorporation of digital technologies and data-driven solutions. Mobile applications, precision agriculture tools, and remote sensing technologies help farmers access real-time information on weather patterns, market prices, and best agricultural practices. This information enables farmers to make informed decisions, reduce risks, and optimize their production.
The event will address climate change’s uneven impact on women smallholder farmers and, promote innovative solutions to enhance their contribution to food production and resilience. By focusing on sustainable practices, technological innovations, and capacity-building initiatives, the event seeks to amplify the voices and agency of women farmers. Through expert panels, case studies, and interactive discussions, the event will underscore the pivotal role women play in sustainable agriculture and offer insights into policies and strategies that can be adopted globally.
