In the face of escalating climate challenges and the pressing need for sustainable solutions, our session at COP28 will spotlight a groundbreaking initiative: ‘Climate-Resilient Sprout Farming: Empowering Refugees.’ This transformative project not only addresses food security in refugee camps but also serves as a powerful climate action strategy. Through innovative sprout farming techniques, we aim to build resilience, mitigate the impact of drought, and contribute to a more sustainable and adaptive future. In this session we will explore the need  of nutritious nutrients for refugees and host communities around with the main focus on children under   5 years. We will explore the process of sprouting. It benefits in the refugee camp where people are living in a semi arid area with a small cultivating space, less accommodative climate to normal agriculture.

The audience will have time to ask more questions to better understand the sprouting process and how they can get involved.
