Messages spread on social media rallied 26 million people around concrete ways for Africa to regain its food sovereignty.
Reaching impact across the board through knowledge sharing
Achieving resilient, regenerative landscapes to address food and nutrition insecurity requires integrated approaches across sectors and involvement from stakeholders at all levels. Effective, consistent, and programmatic knowledge management plays a key role in ensuring these goals are met in a strategic manner.
This side event, organized under the general context of the FAO-led GEF-7 Sustainable Forest Management Impact Program on Dryland Sustainable Landscapes, brings together executing agencies from four Global Environment Facility (GEF) Impact Programmes to present, compare and discuss how effective knowledge sharing is a catalytic tool for assuring greater results on the ground, even after the lifespan of the project.
Learn about innovative and replicable knowledge-sharing approaches from country testimonials. The aim is to inspire replication allowing for past experiences to harness future goals and ambitions of transformative Impact Programmes.
