COP23 side event: The science-policy interface for climate-smart agriculture in action: What are the lessons learned?

Aperçu de l'événement

Agriculture is likely to be the sector most affected by the impacts of climate variability and change. At the same time, many countries have pledged to reduce their emissions following the landmark Paris Agreement in 2015, and many developing countries thus included agriculture and land use change in their NDCs both as a mitigation opportunity and an adaptation priority. In this context, Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) is being promoted as a way for agriculture to both mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Les organisateurs

  • CPH

    The Climate Policy Hub provides comprehensive climate policy and economic analysis grounded on scientific research expertise on tropical agriculture. The Climate Policy Hub (CPH) engages in climate action from analyzing the situation to developing policy strategies, and all the way to implementation and monitoring. As the interface between CIAT’s scientific output on climate change and multi-level decision-making processes for agriculture, the CPH effectively links research and application, and scientists and policymakers, towards thoughtful and practical implementation of climate strategies. A centre for climate economic and policy analysis, the CPH hosts a core group of researchers and works with others from various disciplines – economics, political economy, geospatial analysis, entomology, agronomy, soil and landscape science – to collectively think of and offer solutions from multiple perspectives. Working at different levels of decision-making processes, the CPH syncs tools and knowledge with the needs of organizations and institutions it serves. Through its three main interlinked approaches (think, link, and sync) the CPH intends to enable innovative partnerships and fill the gap in research necessary to promptly unlock investments from public and private sectors in Asia to support sustainable agriculture and food systems. The Climate Policy Hub informs and guides policy action from understanding the context up to implementation and monitoring outcomes.

  • CIAT

    The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), working in collaboration with hundreds of partners across the developing world, is dedicated to developing technologies, innovative methods, and new knowledge that better enable farmers, mainly smallholders, to improve their crop production, incomes, and management of natural resources. Within CGIAR, CIAT has global responsibility for the improvement of beans, cassava, and tropical forages – crops that have historically been neglected by research despite their vital importance for food and nutrition security. It also conducts research on rice and tropical fruits for Latin America and the Caribbean. All of the Center’s work on agricultural biodiversity – encompassing diverse food groups – employs advanced biotechnology to discover useful knowledge and accelerate crop improvement. Progress in CIAT’s crop improvement research also depends on unique collections of genetic resources (65,000 crop samples in all) which it holds in trust for humanity. CIAT conducts research on two major issues that cut across tropical crops and production niches: (1) sustainable management of tropical soils, and (2) decisions and policies that are critical for coping with challenges such as climate change, environmental degradation, gender inequities, and weak links between farmers and markets. Center research in all of these areas (agrobiodiversity, soils, and policy) is carried out by about 200 scientists working in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as in 28 countries Africa and 5 in Southeast Asia.

  • MCC

    Global economic growth has led to the overuse of natural resources like the atmosphere, land and forests. These special assets are called global commons, because they need worldwide cooperation for their sustainable use. To achieve that, a farsighted and international view is needed, which governments and other stakeholders often lack. MCC aims to fill this gap and provides policy advice as well as research on long-term, global issues such as climate change: In this area we explore solutions, foster public debates, and support a broad societal exploration of development alternatives. MCC was founded in 2012 by Stiftung Mercator and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). At the end of its inception phase, which ran from 2012 to 2015, MCC supported 28 full-time-equivalent positions, distributed across 47 total staff members.

  • CGIAR

    CGIAR is the only worldwide partnership addressing agricultural research for development, whose work contributes to the global effort to tackle poverty, hunger and major nutrition imbalances, and environmental degradation. It is carried out by 15 Centers, that are members of the CGIAR Consortium, in close collaboration with hundreds of partners, including national and regional research institutes, civil society organisations, academia, development organisations and the private sector. The 15 Research Centers generate and disseminate knowledge, technologies, and policies for agricultural development through the CGIAR Research Programs. The CGIAR Fund provides reliable and predictable multi-year funding to enable research planning over the long term, resource allocation based on agreed priorities, and the timely and predictable disbursement of funds. The multi-donor trust fund finances research carried out by the Centers through the CGIAR Research Programs.

  • CCAFS

    The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will address the increasing challenge of global warming and declining food security on agricultural practices, policies and measures through a strategic collaboration between CGIAR and Future Earth. Led by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), CCAFS is a collaboration among all 15 CGIAR research centres and coordinates with the other CGIAR research programs. Learn more about our people. All CGIAR centres have a stake in CCAFS, and numerous Centres have considerable climate change expertise and activities. In addition, there is an on-going commitment to a major international partner (Future Earth).
