    Part 1: SCALE Project by Africa Technology Policy Studies Network

    Welcome to our first episode of the year here at Hali Hewa Podcast with your host Abigael Kima. This podcast brings together key African players in the climate to simply share their personal experiences as they advocate for climate justice in their unique capacities.

    In this episode, we will be doing a deep dive on a project by African Technology Policy Studies who previously were hosted on this podcast to speak on AI for Sustainable Agriculture. Today, we will be speaking about a project called Strengthening the Capacity of the Extension System to use Proven Knowledge and Technologies to Sustain Equitable Locally Led Adaptation Among Smallholder Farmers (SCALE).

    Our guests today are no strangers to the podcast.

    I am excited to have the pleasure of hosting three wonderful guests, the Executive Director - Dr. Nicholas Ozor and the Project Manager Eng.Joel Nwakaire at ATPS and Marie-Eve Landry who is the Program Officer at International Development Research Centre (IDRC)
