Seminar:Agriculture Sector Council: A Series on Integrating Climate Change & NRM into Feed the Future Event #3

by Portal Web Editor last modified Jan 10, 2013 07:31 AM
At this seminar,"Sustainable Agricultural Productivity Growth – from an Agricultural Value Chain Perspective," we will begin to answer the question of what it means for agricultural productivity growth to be sustainable in the context of Feed the Future Initiative value chain development. This panel will discuss sustainability from the perspective of watersheds and value chains. Speakers will review the science supporting the need to invest in improved management of rainfall, soils, and other natural resources to ensure that Feed the Future investments—including those in fertilizer and improved seeds—do not become marginalized. We will present evidence that indicates that we can achieve significant increases in productivity and resiliency when fertilizer and improved seed are used in tandem with appropriate natural resource management practices.

About the Seminar Series

The Feed the Future Guide recognizes that "environmental degradation and climate change are critical cross-cutting issues that can affect the sustainability of investments in agricultural development and food security, impede long-term economic growth, and adversely affect livelihoods and well being." This event series, "Integrating Climate Change and Natural Resource Management into Feed the Future," will seek to articulate some of the challenges and opportunities that integration of these issues poses, and present successful program approaches and tools for working across the disciplines of climate change, natural resource management, and food security. The series will share relevant tools, lessons learned, and recommend best practices in the areas of soil, water, nutrition, and climate change resilience and will seek to raise the profile of these cross-cutting issues and their critical linkages to food security.
