Webinar: Climate-smart agriculture: tools for action

Venue: Online
Date: Tuesday April 26 2016

Are you looking for clear guidance on implementing climate-smart agriculture?

Agriculture plays an important role in the fight against climate change: good practices can increase resilience and food security, and reduce emissions. In line with this, agriculture featured in more than 80% of country plans submitted to the UN Climate Negotiations in Paris.

Climate-smart agriculture can help countries deliver on their commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement: making agriculture more climate resilient (improving adaptation and food security) and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the food system.

This one-hour webinar will provide an overview of the latest resources for implementing climate-smart agriculture, including prioritization tools, case studies, and funding opportunities.

It is aimed at agricultural development professionals and national policy makers who want to transform agriculture initiatives, to become climate-resilient and reduce emissions from farming.

Participants will have the opportunity to pose questions to the speakers at the end of the session. These speakers include:

  • Bruce Campbell, Program Director, CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security
  • Olaf Westermann, CCAFS
  • Additional speakers TBC

The webinar is hosted by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
