On 14-15th September 2021, the second External Stakeholder Workshop of our FOCUS-Africa project took place online.
Focusing on Tanzania, the discussions explored the stakeholders needs, challenges and capacities in terms of climate services in Tanzania in three sectors namely, agriculture and food security, energy and infrastructure.
This virtual gathering brought together 200 participants from the Focus-Africa consortium members, international stakeholders, and African government officials, scientists, innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers, civil society among others from academia, public and private sectors, to discuss climate change impacts on Food security, Energy, and Infrastructure in Tanzania.
