The Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC) with support from the Climate and Development
Knowledge Network (CDKN), and in partnership with the IGAD Climate Prediction and
Application Centre (ICPAC), Kenya National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and The
Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF), Uganda has been
implementing a project aimed at creating a climate resilient community of grain stakeholders
that use climate information to increase grain production, reduce post-harvest losses and
improve market access for food security and improved livelihoods.
The project was premised on the fact that post-harvest losses in grain is exacerbated by lack of
user-friendly information and predictions on climate and weather-based information
leading to inability to make appropriate decisions, limited information on climate change
mitigation and adaptation practices to assist in post-harvest management, and lack of knowledge
on climate financing to assist in acquisition of climate smart technologies by actors
within the grain value chain.
The project has since come to an end, and EAGC in partnership with CDKN hosted
a virtual project closeout workshop on 20th April 2021,to disseminate the results realized
during the project implementation period.
