June 11, 2014

The Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security Regional Program for Southeast Asia organized a collective engagement and communication program workshop at the Agricultural Genetics Institute in Hanoi, Vietnam on May 29-20, 2014. The workshop participants include officials from the International Center for Tropical Agriculture, Center for International Forestry Research, International Potato Center, World Agroforestry Centre, International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, International Water Management Institute, International Rice Research Institute, and media practitioners from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, and Vietnam.

During the workshop, the participants discussed about the best practices of CGIAR member-centers, developed a roadmap for engaging partners, and came up with a holistic communication plan for the implementation of CCAFS research agenda and priorities.

CCAFS-SEA is the latest addition to the CCAFS global network. CCAFS-SEA aims to provide a platform for credible and authoritative scientific information, and knowledge and tools for agriculture and food security in the context of climate change. The CCAFS communication network could help amplify CGIAR centers' initiatives to help farmers adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.
