EBA to drive 2025 vision on CAADP

The Eco-system Based Adaptation (EBA) driven agriculture has been acknowledged among priority mechanisms for delivering the 2025 Vision on Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP).

EBA is the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of an overall adaptation strategy to help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.

NaijaAgroNet reports that the Commissioner for the Rural Economy and Agriculture of the African Union (AU), Mrs. Rhoda Peace Tumusiime, made this known while delivering a keynote as Guest of Honour at the official opening of the Second Africa Eco-system based Adaptation (EbA) for Food Security 2015 Conference, Nairobi, Kenya, which had the theme, “Re-imagining Africa Food Security through Harnessing Eco-system based Adaptation(EBA) Approaches- Now and into the Future under Climate Change”.

She said “To operationalize the African Union Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Africa Agriculture Growth and Transformation, the African Union Commission and the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency in consultation with multiple stakeholders and partners, developed the implementation strategy and roadmap as well as the porogramme of work. Within these strategic documents, eco-system based adaptation (EBA) driven agriculture is recognized as being among priority mechanisms for delivering the 2025 Vision on CAADP.”

The Conference which attracted about 1,500 participants from all over Africa as well as development finance and technical partners from all parts of world, NaijaAgroNet gathered, had key objectives of  determining how EbA can be harnessed to protect and restore Africa’s ecosystems as well as integrate it into policy frameworks to enable improved agricultural production and productivity.

It is also to identify scalable and inclusive business models for EbA driven agriculture that can create opportunities in the entire agricultural value chain, and understand the benefits of EbA for job and wealth creation and the achievement of the proposed  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what Africa will lose as a continent if EbA is ignored or given little support in the context of increasing population and rapid urbanization coupled with climate change, NaijaAgroNet reports.
