Advancing climate-smart agriculture: CCAFS Annual Report 2013 highlights the program’s main contributions to attaining food security in a changing climate

29 May, 2014 by (comments)

The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is dedicated to putting climate-smart agriculture at the heart of farming practices and policy across the globe.

CCAFS, whose research is closely integrated with capacity strengthening, partner engagement, and creative communications, presents impressive achievements over the last year in its Annual Report 2013, published earlier this month.

The report documents CCAFS engagement on climate-smart agriculture in 20 countries; its fruitful collaboration with farmers, civil society, governments, and researchers; the strengthening of capacities from farmers to international climate-change negotiators; its work with national meteorological services to produce climate information at a scale that is relevant to rural communities; and many more inspiring stories.

Discover also the climate-smart villages (or districts or landscapes), where different adaptation strategies, technologies, and practices are tested on the ground with local communities and a multitude of partners. Fifteen of these villages have been created so far in West Africa, East Africa, and South Asia.

Led by CIAT, CCAFS involves all 15 CGIAR centers and coordinates its work with the other CGIAR research programs.

The CCAFS Annual Report is available online and illustrated with infographics and other multimedia.
