Climate-Smart Agriculture at Feed the Future's 2014 Global Forum

Long-term food security goals can be achieved only when development efforts address the changing world in which we live. During this plenary session moderated by the World Agroforestry Center's former Director General Dr. Dennis Garrity, experts in climate change and agriculture from NASA (Dr. Molly Brown), the World Bank (Marc Sadler), and USAID (Dr. Jerry Glover) share their perspectives on the current state of knowledge and our potential ways forward. Molly and Marc begin by reviewing the evidence on what we know about the impacts of climate change on agriculture in the developing world. Jerry then provides a summary of what is being done under the US Government's Feed the Future Initiative to address the goals of sustainably increasing production while enhancing resilience to climate change. Dennis then reviews innovative practices that are enhancing production and adaptation in large areas of the Sahel, one of the areas the most vulnerable to climate change. The session culminates with a discussion of an emerging international effort to draw attention to this critical challenge and facilitate the creation of practical working alliances to promote climate-smart agriculture.
