Workshop on Carbon and Water Standards for Trade in Agricultural Products in Kenya (en)
In December 2011, ITC in collaboration with the Europe-Africa-Caribbean-Pacific Liaison Committee - Pesticides Initiative Programme (COLEACP-PIP) and the Fresh Produce Exporters Association of Kenya (FPEAK) held a multi-stakeholder workshop on carbon and water management in horticultural exports from East Africa. The workshop was held in Naivasha, Kenya on the 8 and 9 December.
The aim of the workshop was to provide Kenyan fresh produce exporters, local service providers, representatives from the public sector and professional associations with an overview of the sustainability agenda in the agri-food sector, with a special emphasis on carbon and water management. The workshop gave an update on latest developments, and discussed some of the key issues facing Kenyan stakeholders. The results of the workshop will be used to identify local capacity building needs, and thus enable the preparation of more targeted assistance in 2012. The workshop was funded by the Government of Denmark and the European Union.
