The 8th Annual Agricultural Policy Conference (AAPC) will take place at the Asante Domiya Estate in Dodoma between June 6th – 8th, 2022.
There is compelling evidence that Tanzania is already experiencing the negative impact of climate change. Changes in precipitation patterns, rising temperatures, and extreme weather events pose an increasing threat to the country’s economy. The agricultural sector is at the forefront in experiencing climate change’s brutal impact. The sector’s heavy reliance on rainfall and natural resources intensifies its vulnerability and further complicates the country’s efforts to improve sector productivity.
In line with the Global and National Agenda on Climate Change 2021, the theme of the 8th AAPC, “Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Policies in the Crops, Livestock, and Fisheries Sector,” intends to further emphasize the importance of the Climate Change agenda to the Tanzanian economy. The conference will convene over 250 participants from academia, research institutions, policy and advocacy groups, and development practitioners from Tanzania and beyond to discuss the theme of this year’s conference.
The conference will implement a hybrid model with 150 people participating physically and more than twice this number joining virtually. The 8th AAPC will observe strict COVID-19 protocols.
