Enhanced awareness and information sharing of best practices on sustainable natural resources management practices in response to increasing risks and vulnerability from climate change at the livestock-wildlife interface
This component will foster exchange of experiences and comparative learning at the regional level through dissemination of best practices and exchange visits. The activities include:
Activity 1: Identification of the target groups and facilitation of exchange visits for the dissemination of success stories and lessons learnt.
Based on specific needs identified by the community and/or any stakeholders, exchange visits will be organised either at the country, regional or continental levels, to share experience between communities, implementing partners or government officials of countries directly or indirectly benefiting from the action.
Activity 2: Documentation of the success stories and lessons learnt and sharing of information
This activity is core to the AU-IBAR strategy to become the repository of knowledge and information on animal resources in Africa in order to facilitate development of policies, guidelines and other decision-support tools and ensure harmonization as appropriate. Lessons learnt success stories, best practices will be documented in the form of policy briefs, posters, fact sheets, project reports and disseminated electronically via the AU-IBAR and partners' web sites and via AU-IBAR networks. They will also be available as printed materials, CD and video tapes. Most important will be the understanding of the factors of success and what needs to be improved for wider adoption by other communities.
Activity 3: Dissemination and progress assessment workshops
Technical workshops at the national, regional and continental levels will be organised regularly to assess progress on implementation and share experiences and lessons between implementing partners. It is also envisaged that teams of projects with the same scope (thematic and geographical) will be invited to these workshops for synergies and complementarities in interventions.
