On March 1, 2012, a discussion was held at the World Resources Institute in Washington, D.C. on experiences in the Sahel using Climate Smart Agriculture to increase productivity and resiliency, including lessons learned from farmer innovations and observed landscape transformations in Niger, Burkina Faso & Mali.

This event featured leading global experts who discussed lessons learned from farmer innovations and observed landscape transformations in Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali. The speakers drew on their experiences in the Sahel to explore how to use Climate Smart Agriculture to increase productivity and resiliency.

In the wake of the latest crisis in the Horn of Africa, concerns are mounting about a potential food crisis in the West African Sahel. This event focused on scaling up interventions to address the root causes of chronic food shortages while strengthening household economies.
