Experts Call for Dispersion of Climate Information

Experts at the 2016 African Economic Conference earlier this month called for timely implementation of climate actions and release of information capable of assisting rural farmers against climate change impacts.

The experts from the agriculture sector made the call at the ongoing conference organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB), in partnership with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), taking place this week in Abuja.

The conference, themed "Feed Africa: Towards Agro-Allied Industrialization for Inclusive Growth", is expected to proffer sustainable solutions to challenges hindering agricultural development in the African continent.

During a session on land, a lead presenter, Boris Odilon Kounagbè Lokonon from the Université de Parakou, Benin, identified need for the climate actions, describing them as part of resilient strategies to check impacts of climate change.
