June 2010: First call for concept notes: Adapting to climate change in agriculture and the environment in eastern Africa

First Call for Concept Notes on Adapting to Climate Change in Agriculture and the Environment in eastern Africa targeted:

  •   Improving crop productivity and resilience to climate change in small-scale farming systems (theme 1)
  •   Improving the efficiency of the agro-processing industry to add value to local bio-resources in a sustainable manner (theme 2)

The first call for concept notes addressed the effects of climate change on African agriculture and the environment and the use of bio-sciences innovations to enable African farmers, agro-processing industries, small businesses and local communities to adapt to climate change and/or to mitigate its negative effects.
Successful concept notes were followed by invitations for proposals. This Call for Concept Notes was open to regional applications that are led by public and/or private entities (including small scale enterprises and NGOs) in one of the six Bio-Innovate participating countries of Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. The lead entities from the region were encouraged to include other regional and/or international partners, within or beyond the eastern Africa region, as partners in the proposed projects.
