The Congress is being organised under the following theme and sub-themes
Bring out new knowledge on CA, SAM and agriculture, in general; i.e. the outputs of the congress are expected to be more than just proceedings, but applicable knowledge.
Strengthening effective pan-African national and regional networks, partnerships and cooperation mechanisms. Be attractive and worth-the-while not just to the CA & SAM “faithful”, but other players and interest groups/organisations with important roles for enhanced CA & SAM development and scaling.
Have significant and active representation of farmers, policy/decision makers, and private sector from across all the regions and sectors.
Showcase proven and sustainable adoption of SAM & CA, their impact on the environment and peoples’ livelihoods. Highlight eventual challenges of SAM & CA application, focus on and bring out practical issues and lessons to accelerate adoption as well as the associated input support service system.
Be interactive, allowing active participation and discussions, e.g. thematic working groups, open space (videos, theatre, demonstrations and or training materials).
