IAFD – Lessons from the field: strategies for effective implementation of climate focused projects and enhancement of nutrition benefits
In the framework of the IFAD funded project “Lessons from the field: strategies for effective implementation of climate focused projects and enhancement of nutrition benefits”, the project team lead by AGT organized and held a peer-to-peer event on 11 and 12 October 2022, with the presence of relevant stakeholders from IFAD and from five countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region (Nicaragua, República Dominicana, Brazil, El Salvador, and Argentina). Gerda Verburg, United Nations Assistant Secretary General and Coordinator of the SUN Movement, decided to stop by and participate to the discussions.
The event was very successful, and many interesting lessons were shared among participants. The project team will now be able to produce a tool-kit to support and guide IFAD Staff and Consultants on the successful implementation of climate financed projects and climate-focused activities to improve resilience of beneficiaries and enhancing any possible benefits on nutrition.
As a major take-away, the group created important links among the five countries, that will translate into more cooperation, more participatory actions, and more sustainable project outputs in the field of nutrition, biodiversity, and climate change.
