One of the objectives of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is to bring together the research community to focus on addressing food security, and dealing with resilience, adaptation, and mitigation. To support this, CCAFS helped to set up the Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change, which is busy finalizing its recommendations for policy makers, which will be launched on 16 November.
Christine Negra, who coordinates the Commission, recently spoke to the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development about the need to transform the food system, highlighting achievements at the Global Science Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture in the Netherlands, and giving a sneak preview of the Commission's proposal.
