Context of the event:

This webinar intends to deliberate on the role of sustainable diversification of the agricultural system to enhance the production, consumption, and marketing of nutritious food as a strategy to build socio-ecological resilience and withstand shocks induced by climate variability, market instability, growing trends in population growth and scarcity of key natural resources. It aims to initiate a regional conversation on common and dominant challenges related to the Lift, plausible short and long-term solutions, potential partnerships (private-public, cross-sectoral, and regional), and institutional frameworks required for sustainable solutions. 

Key outcomes of the discussion will be used to validate or reject commonly held understandings and explore opportunities (project-based, as well as national and/or regional level interventions) to address the growing regional challenges to sustainable diversification; and vegetables, fruits and fish value chains. The insights gained from the webinar will be used to inform the development of plausible solutions that build resilience and enhance food and nutritional security at scale.
