Unveiling the Nexus between Agrifood Systems and Climate Change: Harvesting insights from latest IPCC reports
04:00 pm > 05:30 pm UTC+01:00
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has concluded its Sixth Assessment Report cycle, which includes six reports covering various aspects of climate change, its impacts, and a Synthesis Report in 2023. The report offers significant insights and recommendations for policymakers, industry, and civil society to tackle climate change.
Agriculture and food systems are among the critical sectors already significantly impacted by climate change, and adaptation measures will be necessary to mitigate those impacts.
Unveiling the Nexus between Agrifood Systems and Climate Change webinar
CGIAR, via the CGIAR Climate Impact Platform and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), is hosting a webinar to share the latest findings from the Sixth Assessment Report cycle regarding agrifood systems.
- Inform research practitioners, scholars, and policymakers, on how climate change is impacting agrifood systems and vice-versa.
- Enhance understanding around solution measures across agri-food systems to address climate change.
- Foster new collaborations and partnerships to advance research and development efforts in the food system-climate change nexus.
