Join CCAFS and partners for key Climate-Smart Agriculture events at Climate Week NYC
Climate-Smart Agriculture will be a major topic at Climate Week NYC from 22-28 September 2014, where a number of events will take place in support of the UN Climate Summit. Together, these events have the potential to catapult climate change back to the top of the world agenda, mobilising leaders to act now.
Key events focused on Climate-Smart Agriculture
This event will gather high-profile speakers to discuss "Building innovative and sustainable index insurance markets in developing countries." The forum will include a keynote address, followed by a panel discussion where CCAFS Scientist John Hellin (CIMMYT) will present. This is organised in collaboration with the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) at Columbia University, a major CCAFS partner. A live webcast will be available at iri.columbia.edu/live starting at 9:30 EDT on the 24th.
The meeting brings together partners of the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture, to share information and guide its inception year. CCAFS is a founding member of the Alliance. Join the live webcast on the 24th of September. Advance registration required. The online audience can join in and ask questions via live chat and on twitter using #CSA_Alliance.
