Almost all countries in West Africa submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) in Paris in December 2015. As the countries prepare to implement INDCs, there is need to support stakeholders in the agricultural sector to understand what INDCs mean for their businesses and, to identify the type of assistance that Pacific countries require to help them effectively implement their INDCs. Key activities are to produce a simplified version of the INDCs for two countries in the region and, co-organize a technical session with regional/national partners to inform farmers and stakeholders on the implications of the INDC and enhance their engagement in its implementation. Expected Outputs are (i) Simplified version of the INDC submitted by two selected countries and implications for farmers and potential investment in agriculture (ii) Technical session on INDCs clearly identifying opportunities for investment and scaling-up of climate solutions (iii) An action plan to support farmers, private sector players and other stakeholders in the implementation of the INDCs.
