Ghana’s Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (CSIR-STEPRI) is hosting CAAST-Net Plus training workshop for early-career researchers working on topics related to sustainable agriculture intensification in Accra from 21-23 November. 

It will include a two-day workshop followed by a half-day field trip. The workshop will provide targeted information and guidance for early-career African researchers with a professional interest in sustainable agriculture intensification. It will pursue a predominantly training/workshop style and structure, with opportunities for researchers to work alone and in small groups to develop their own ideas, proposal and strategies.

In particular, speakers from the public, private and academic sectors will provide guidance on:

- Identifying current research/knowledge priorities and gaps/needs regarding the uptake of sustainable agriculture intensification practices, as a means to adapt to climate change, as identified by speakers representing private sector, academia, civil society and local or regional policy-makers.

- How to access relevant funding sources, where invited speakers will introduce both private and public funding sources and provide practical recommendations on how to access such funding.

- Group-based sessions where participants can seek advice and receive coaching from the speakers on specific research ideas/proposals.
