A livestreamed discussion on what the IPCC report's findings mean for agricultural growth and development, jobs and global food security
What does climate change spell for the future of agriculture, particularly for approximately 500 million people who rely on small-scale farming, fisheries and livestock for their livelihoods? And how can we safeguard food security for smallholders and the rest of the world now and in the future? In late March 2014 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II will finalize its report on “Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability”, revealing the threats climate change poses to agriculture and food security.
The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), The World Bank, The Prince's Charities' International Sustainability Unit, WillisRe and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will convene a high-level discussion in response to the IPCC Report's findings, and examine what action needs to happen to ensure food security and agricultural growth.
The half-day livestreamed event will examine the implications of the IPCC findings for agricultural growth and development, jobs and food security, and identify actions and options for moving forward in agriculture, particularly with respect to investing in smallholder farmers
A panel of international experts, including IPCC authors, will examine game-changing options for agriculture, particularly with respect to investing in smallholder farmers.
