With technical and financial support from Geneva based CUTS International, since 2012 the ESRF has been implementing a regional study titled “Promoting Agriculture, Climate Change and Trade Linkages in the EAC” (PACT). The objective of this project is to build capacity of East Africa Countries in the implementation of climate friendly, trade driven and food security enhancing agro – processing. Implementation of this research and advocacy project involves coordination of a series of National Reference Group Meetings (NRGM).

One of the key objectives of the meeting is to launch and discuss an important output of the project namely a report titled “Agro-industrial Development Policies – what nexus to climate, food security and trade?”
