The Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) programme assesses current knowledge of how climate change affects agriculture and food security, toward mapping the way forward
As food demand rises and farmers begin to feel the impacts of a changing climate, a new and complex set of challenges are emerging. Scientists from across the CGIAR and its research partners are integrating expertise on climate change, agriculture and food security to meet these challenges.
A new paper from CCAFS (PDF) takes stock of current knowledge regarding climate change and approaches to mitigate and adapt to its impacts, aiming to chart the way forward for research and policy action. CCAFS is a partnership of the international agricultural research Centers of the CGIAR and the Earth Systems Science Partnership. Read more »
