Climate-smart Agriculture Sparks Economic Renewal

June 18, 2014

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations released a new publication titled FAO Success Stories on Climate-smart Agriculture. The main message of the publication is that climate-smart approach in agriculture will not only help prevent future problems in food security but also holds the promise of initiating economic renewal in rural areas stricken by hunger and poverty. The publication features case studies in climate-smart agriculture from different countries worldwide.

"We can no longer afford to separate the future of food security from that of natural resources, the environment and climate change - they are inextricably intertwined and our response must be as well," said FAO Deputy Director-General Helena Semedo.
