IITA to host One-Health webinar on climate-driven pests and diseases in West Africa
On Tuesday, 30 June 2020, CGIAR-IITA will host a webinar on climate-driven pests and diseases in West Africa under the “One-Health platform for climate-driven pests and diseases in West Africa”. The webinar will take place from 2 to 4 pm West African time.
To advance agricultural and food systems, CGIAR instituted eight unique Regional Grand Challenges focusing on generating different radical innovations in technology and practice. These challenges are all under the umbrella of the Two Degree Initiative for Food and Agriculture. As one of the eight challenges, One-Health aims to address the risks of climate change and how the world’s food systems and small-scale farmers can adapt at the speed and scale needed.
