Webinar for journalists: Communicating climate change's impact on agriculture and food in Asia
Modifying the way we do agriculture is a global priority, and Asia, with nearly 60 percent of the world’s population, must play a leading role in agricultural transformation. This webinar will lay out some of the main issues with our current agriculture system and discuss potential solutions from the agricultural science perspective. Climate-Smart Agriculture systems, which seek to increase productivity and reduce environmental impact, will be one of the topics discussed. Experts will also discuss the main takeaways for agriculture in Asia from the most recent United Nations climate change conference.
