2023: Kano-ACReSAL to partner academia to address climate change challenges
Kano State Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes (Kano-ACReSAL) has concluded arrangements to partner with academia so as to achieve its set goals seamlessly.
Kano-ACReSAL Project Coordinator Dr. Dahir M. Hashim announced this on Tuesday in an interview with journalists at the 4th International Conference on Drylands and Food For West Africa Network Conference, holding at Bayero University, Kano.
Dr. Hashim reckoned that there is an existing gap between the government and the experts particularly in the academia on the availability of resources that will be utilized to better life.
A statement issued by ACReSAL, Communication Officer, Maryam AbdulQuadir, said Dr Hashim stated that ACReSAL has deliberately opened doors for collaborations with all entities that prioritize the realization of a better environment for all.
According to the statement, Kano-ACReSAL therefore, considers collaborating with the CDA to achieve the objectives upon which the project is conceived for the benefit of the local communities, state, and the country as a whole.
The statement noted that Dr. Dahir M. Hashim added that already the project is considering some memorandum of understanding with some local and international organizations on the provision of climate compliance materials and encouraging clean energy for the people.
The statement added that the two CDA 4th International Conference on Drylands and the Food For West Africa Network Conference have two themes, ” Ecosystem Restoration and Natural Resources Management: Exploring Opportunities for Food Security in the Drylands” while the other is “Improving Climate-Resilience Agriculture in West Africa: Leveraging the Success of the Regional Africa Centers of Excellence”.
