A framework to identify suitable on-farm approaches to combat climate change
- Published on
Comparing ‘climate smart’ agricultural strategies just became easier. A framework that can lead to right farm interventions in these times of changing climate has been designed by a multi-institutional team of researchers.
A recently published study titled ‘A framework for priority-setting in climate smart agriculture research’, in the journal Agricultural Systems, describes a six-element framework to inform where research investments should be made. This is done by determining the effect of multiple research options on the Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) pillar triad and estimating research impact. The framework resulted from a writing workshop held last year in Galway, Ireland.
