Community level workshops in Madagascar to increase awareness about the ITPGRFA and the Nagoya Protocol
Following up on the efforts made during the previous two years, the project has continued to sponsor awareness raising and capacity strengthening workshops at the community level. In Analavory, Madagascar, a workshop was held on 20 September 2017 aimed at increasing the understanding of the ITPGRFA and the Nagoya Protocol at the local level. The community was also introduced to the project activities that are to be conducted during the next few months. Thirty-six (36) people attended the workshop, 16 of which were women.

Bioversity was able to channel an additional 20,000 USD to the national teams from both Benin and Madagascar (40,000 total) from another project – GRPI – to support further intensification of community-level capacity building and policy development in the final year of the project.
This project is conducted with the support of the Darwin Initiative - a UK Government Funded Programme. It is carried out in collaboration with the ABS Capacity Development Initiative, the Secretariats of the CBD and the ITPGRFA and the AUC. It is delivered through the CGIAR Research Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and through Bioversity International.
