Agriculture Stakeholders Meet for Climate-Smart Farming

December 18, 2013

A group of researchers, climate change experts, and other partners met in Bangkok, Thailand, to discuss where to establish climate-smart villages supported by CGIAR's research program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS). The meeting also discussed the way forward for research activities on the said topic.

The plan, to be shaped by CCAFS, is part of its global initiative to address climate change impacts through climate smart agriculture and policy advice on resilient food systems. The results of meetings in Bangkok will inform the overall strategy of CCAFS - led by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture,  to transform agricultural systems and make them more resilient in the face of climate change.
