The Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER) is pleased to host the 2023 global gathering of the Innovation lab for Food Security Policy Research, Capacity, and Influence (PRCI) which will take place from April 25 to 27, 2023.
Representatives from PRCI institutional partners from across the Global South, as well as international policy research institutes, Cornell University, and Michigan State University will come together to exchange knowledge, share best practices, and discuss solutions to promote sustainable growth in the industry. The three-day event aims to start planning for the programme's final year and celebrate some of the accomplishments under PRCI.
A key part of activities marking day one, April 25, is the launch of the Comprehensive Africa Climate Change Initiative (CACCI), which is being implemented in Ghana by ISSER. During this event, the collaborative work CACCI-Ghana has been doing with Policy LINK, another USAID-funded activity, will be highlighted as well as lessons learned from other pilot countries in Africa.
ISSER looks forward to welcoming the participants to the ISSER conference centre and to fruitful deliberations, networking, and collaboration.

About the Comprehensive Africa Climate Change Initiative (CACCI)
The African Union Commission’s Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Blue Economy and Sustainable Environment (AUC-DARBE) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) jointly officially launched the Comprehensive Africa Climate Change Initiative (CACCI) on 8th November 2021, during the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26) held in Glasgow, United Kingdom. CACCI is focused on providing support to selected African Union (AU) member States in their efforts to respond to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and, is designed to contribute to the implementation of the African Climate Change Strategy, while also complementing the African Union’s Green Recovery Plan.
CACCI is funded by USAID with facilitation and technical support from two African institutions, that is, the Africa Network of Agricultural Policy Research Institutes (ANAPRI) and AKADEMIYA2063 in partnership with Michigan State University (MSU).
This initiative is aimed at strengthening national, regional, and continental capacity towards developing and/or implementing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) that would improve resilience, food security, and inclusive growth in the face of climate change. It will be implemented over a 5-year period, from 2022 - 2026.
