Project Characteristics and Results
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
Beyond the communication strategy, the programme will include a strong knowledge management component to ensure that information about the project, experiences and lessons learnt will be shared among all relevant stakeholders. The experiences so derived will be scaled up/replicated in other parts of the country. This also involves major potential for scaling up and synergies in relation to subsequent donor programmes. This project will have a specific learning and knowledge sharing strategy focused on the knowledge needs of key project stakeholders, beneficiaries, and beneficiaries at the community level on climate smart agriculture. The project will have a component of “knowledge management and dissemination of lessons learned on gender sensitive, climate sensitive, climate-smart agriculture, organic farming, and adaptation planning”, focusing particularly on outreach and information exchange.
