The level of climate finance in the agricultural sector is very small compared with other sectors. Less than 5% of global climate finance is targeted to agricultural sector and, even much less to smallholder farmers. This is in contrast to the responsibility placed on agricultural sector to produce more food by 2050 under climatic uncertainties.
Promoting climate finance for agriculture in Tchad
As part of the efforts to improve this, CTA commissioned a national study to review NDCs and related policy documents in Tchad to identify level of implementation of NDCs, assess the status accorded to agriculture in the policy documents and the engagement of agricultural stakeholders in the implementation of the NDCs, and identify emerging opportunities and climate financing models to support agriculture in the country.
The national stakeholder workshop, will be co-organised by CTA, Société de production des produits alimentaires en Afrique (SDPA) in partnership with the minister de l’Environnement, de l’eau et de la pêche (MEEP) and minister de la Production, de l'irrigation et des équipements agricoles (MPIEA). The workshop will engage stakeholders including government officials, farmers’ organisations, NGOs, national designated authority, Ministry of Finance, agro-allied companies, financial institutions, insurance companies and policy think-tanks in the country.
