The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) is organizing its 3rd K-Sharing and Learning event “Building capacities to empower farmers to manage risks at farm level: lessons from experience” on Wednesday, 12 December 2018 in Lusaka. The main objective of the event is to bring stakeholders together to exchange ideas on innovative and solution-based capacity development approaches to disseminating knowledge at the farm level, through peer-to-peer, south-south cooperation and partnership building - read the event Concept Note and Agenda.
This event has become necessary following stakeholders’ recognition of capacity development as one of the key pillars for agricultural risk management, and the need to strengthen farmers capacity to develop innovative solutions to mitigate, cope and/or transfer the risk of all kinds.
The event will welcome participants from across government agencies, farmers' organizations, the private sector, civil society groups and many more. Participants will share and exchange ideas through panel discussions, showcase and group activities.
