CIRAWA Project strengthens collaborative bonds and knowledge sharing as consortium meeting arrives in Cape Verde

CIRAWA will host its 2nd Consortium Meeting from 28 February to 2 March 2024, in Santo Antão, Cape Verde. The gathering in Porto Novo will bring together 14 partners from nine countries, all united in their commitment to improve food nutrition, local livelihoods, and ecosystem health for small-scale farmers in West Africa. CIRAWA is a four-year, EU-funded project focused on innovative agroecological solutions to build climate resilience in Cape Verde, Ghana, Senegal and The Gambia.

Cape Verde, an island nation, is witnessing the effects of climate change. The country’s agricultural sector, which mainly comprises family subsistence farms, is particularly vulnerable to climate challenges and local communities must work together towards climate solutions. It is in this sense that the CIRAWA gathering will serve as an opportunity for the project to expand its network and forge closer ties with local associations to plan for a more climate resilient future. This will be done by focusing on the four innovative agroecological approaches that are emphasized by CIRAWA: agrowaste valorisation, phytoremediation, quality seeds and land management practices.
